As more Americans gain access to affordable renewable energy, and as more ‘shared’ and ‘community’ solar programs crop up across the country, states are asking the question: how can we bring shared renewable energy opportunities to our low and moderate income (LMI) households?
Celebrating 23 years of recognizing exemplary people, projects and programs for renewable energy and energy efficiency, our 2016 year’s winners in each competitive category were selected by more than 1,000 online voters. Join us as we honor our 2016 3iAwardees…
IREC presented on four critical topics at Intersolar North America July 12-14, 2016.
IREC is looking for an ambitious, self-motivated and self-directed program coordinator to support IREC’s state and national engagement and leadership on distributed energy resource policies and related consumer issues.
SITN’s successor program, the Solar Training Network, will continue the momentum started by the SITN. This new program seeks to meet the needs of the growing solar industry by continuing to build the network of solar training providers, job seekers and employers. The newly configured Solar Training Network will be led by our friends at The Solar Foundation.
A long-awaited Rule 21 decision today by the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) comes with some very important wins for the energy customer who is interested in investing in distributed renewable energy.
The applications for IREC’s coveted 2016 3iAwards for Innovation, Ingenuity and Inspiration in the clean energy economy are in. It’s time to vote for the nation’s best in both renewable energy and energy efficiency.
Jane Weissman will step down as IREC president and CEO on June 30, after leading the national non-for-profit since 1994. The IREC Board of Directors has appointed Larry Sherwood, currently IREC vice president and COO, to take over the organization’s leadership position.
Last month, IREC joined Fresh Energy and the Environmental Law & Policy Center to file a joint motion with the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission, which includes a proposal that would help the state implement interconnection changes based on a compilation of best practices and lessons learned from other states.
