As more solar power comes online and more plug-in electric vehicles begin driving through our communities, it is increasingly important that we design creative solutions that intelligently connect these technologies to our electrical grid. How can solar power and electric vehicles work together to support a cleaner, more efficient electrical grid? What needs to be done to safely and affordably integrate these technologies into our neighborhoods and cities?
Hear from Cameron Coleman from InSpec, in partnership with the Citizens’ Utility Board of Oregon and Solar Oregon, who will discuss what our sustainable energy future could look like and more.
