Peer Exchange Call: Combining Solar & Home Performance Services
September 3, 2019$65 – $75
Join the U.S. Dept. of Energy’s Better Buildings Residential Network on Thursday, December 11, from 3:00-4:30 PM Eastern Time for a peer exchange call on the topic of Combining Solar and Home Performance Services. The call will explore how to deliver cost-effective solutions for homeowners to increase comfort and reduce energy bills. For background on this topic, refer to the article “The Struggle to Combine Energy Efficiency and Solar Power,” which describes how programs have structured services and incentives that helped customers make cost-effective choices about energy efficiency measures and solar technology. According to the article, “Programs for solar and efficiency are in separate silos. Installers do not collaborate as effectively as they could. When solar companies do not address energy efficiency in tandem with solar power, systems can be oversized – increasing costs for homeowners.”
We’ll hear from representatives of two organizations profiled in the article who will discuss their knowledge and experience about combining solar and home performance services:
• Tim Harvey, Austin Energy
• Ria Langheim, Center for Sustainable Energy
