Join policy experts, researchers, industry members, public employees, and nonprofit organization representatives for a series of panel discussions focusing on solar policies and practices across the state of Iowa. Each panel will focus on solar topics at different levels — from the municipal, to the county, and finally statewide. Each session will consist of an introduction and speaker remarks from each panelist. Following the panelists' individual presentations, a moderated Q&A session will take place, allowing the audience to engage with the panel experts.

The preliminary titles of the panels are listed here:

  • Panel Session 1: Solar at the Local Level: How Can Iowa Support Customer-Owned and Community Solar?
  • Panel Session 2: The Land Use Debate: Is Utility-Scale Solar Compatible with Current Land Uses?
  • Panel Session 3: Statewide Solar: What Is Planned for a Reliable and Equitable Solar + Storage + Transmission Grid?

Breakfast, lunch, and refreshments will be provided for attendees. More details will be announced soon. To register, visit: https://uiowa.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_2lU6iMrnn17eLu6
