Sun Up: Scaling Solar Power In California

Bob Epstein, Founder, Environmental Entrepreneurs
Nancy McFadden, SVP, PG&E
Mike Peevey, Chair, California Public Utilities Commission
Mike Splinter, CEO, Applied Materials

Solar power is surging and yet it is still a small part of California's overall energy supply.
How will the state's plan calling for a third of all electricity to be from renewable sources by 2030 impact the growth of commercial and industrial solar?

What are the key obstacles and drivers to meeting that ambitious goal? With the price of photovoltaic cells falling, how will that technology stack up against concentrated solar power?

Will novel financing schemes and buyer's clubs drive demand and make residential solar more accessible? Our panel of experts discusses how bright the future is for sun energy in the
Golden State.
