The Spotlight Roundtable Series
The Future of NJ Solar Policy
11:45-1:30, Trenton
Lunch will be served / Seating is limited

Join us for an in-depth discussion in an intimate setting on the future of NJ solar policy. Issues will include what's the true cost of the state's solar program and what does it deliver in terms of economic growth? Some argue that New Jersey's solar policy drives up the cost of doing business in the state. Others point to solar's hidden success as the fastest-growing segment in a faltering economy. This year, with potential changes to the Energy Master Plan that may modify fees that fund incentives, an open discussion of NJ's solar policy is critical.

Tom Johnson, co-founder and energy writer for NJ Spotlight, will moderate a round-table discussion with solar industry leaders and Upendra Chivukula, chairman, Assembly Telecommunications and Utilities Committee. Join with industry leaders, policy-makers and those who shape the debate.
