The League of Women Voters of the Charlottesville Area invites you to join a FREE Virtual event: “The Dark Side of the Sun?” – Renewable Sources of Electrical Power: Challenges and Promises.

Event Description:

To protect our ecological systems it is crucial that we adopt renewable sources of power. But how do we do it in ways that produce the most benefit and least harm to the environment? It’s not as simple as it seems. The LWV February Seminar addresses some of the complexities involved in having utility scale electric power switch from fossil fuels to renewable energy sources. These complexities include proper siting of solar farms and ability to access the grid. In addition to solutions for renewable energy development problems, for example, best practices and regulations for solar farms, creative ways of installing small distributive scale solar power also will be discussed.

Guest Speakers:

Jeff Hammond with Apex Clean Energy
Dan Holmes with Piedmont Environmental Council
