Webinar Addresses The Solar Developers


Learn and discuss about the growing solar market.

Dailycsr.com – 26 September 2016 – The developers of solar products as well as other marketers for “renewable energy” have shown an increased interaction, whereby they directly get in touch with the “end-use customers” who either show an interest in solar energy related goods purchase or the “development solar PV projects”.
The developers delving into the above-mentioned deal category need to prepare themselves so that they can address “a range of concerns and goals” varying from “their traditional customers”, which mainly involves “utilities and electricity providers”.
However, it is important to bear in mind that “reputational and legal risk” could loom in the horizon for both the customers and developers alike, in case, the deal conditions are not “properly understood”, which mostly means the “renewable energy benefits by all involved entities”. The CRS or the “Center for Resource Solutions” in partnership with the “National Renewable Energy Laboratory”, in short NREL, is holding a webinar. It is free for anyone to join, while the key points the webinar would address are, as enlisted by Ethical Performance:
• The role of renewable energy certificates (RECs) in renewable energy claims
• Regulations and restrictions on marketing solar energy products
• Examples of deceptive marketing statements and marketing
• Key disclosure considerations under various solar purchasing options including onsite generation, PPAs, and REC purchases
• Best practices in partnering with universities for solar deployment
• Additional deal considerations, including REC arbitrage, state incentives, operating within cap-and-trade programs, and state laws
Moreover, the said webinar is meant especially for the “developers and renewable energy marketers” who directly engage with the “end-use customers”, which could also involve the “higher education institutions”.
