Advancing Solar Energy in Pennsylvania Tell a Friend about this Course

The next few years will be an exciting time for solar energy in Pennsylvania. Nationwide, the solar industry is booming. Average installation costs dropped 12 percent from 2015 to 2016, and those costs continue to fall. Increasing demand has made jobs in the industry grow almost 12 times faster than the economy as a whole. Change is coming. The question for Pennsylvania is: What will it take for the state to be a leader on solar? The PA Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) and the federal Department of Energy recently announced a cooperative agreement to answer just that question. Join Rob Altenburg, Director of PennFuture Energy Center for a discussion on the "Finding Pennsylvania's Solar Future," project in which DEP and interested stakeholders will spend the next 30 months investigating how to expand in-state solar generation to 10 percent of sales by 2030.
