The Potential of Solar Canopies in Connecticut
by People’s Action for Clean Energy
Learn about solar canopies at an on-line workshop Friday, June 4, 9:30-11:30 a.m. As Connecticut looks for new places to site solar, our forests and farmlands are under increasing threat. One way to avoid these conflicts is to take advantage of land already “degraded,” including parking lots. People’s Action for Clean Energy (PACE) has conducted groundbreaking research into the potential for solar on parking lots and Kieren Rudge will present the results of this research. We will also hear the practical experiences of Tim White, a member of the Cheshire BOE, in siting a solar canopy in his town. Stephan Hartmann and Eric Virkler of Earthlight Technologies will also share insights from their extensive experience building solar canopies across the state.
