Event Description

As Hawaii’s ground-breaking community-based renewable energy (CBRE) program and tariff are implemented, all parties interested and involved in the delivery of solar projects will need a comprehensive understanding of the essential implementation components.

This program’s objective is to bring expertise and additional insights to bear from around the other parts of the U.S. where community solar projects have been instituted. It will offer “best practices” as to what has (and hasn’t) worked, so that those engaged in Hawaii CBRE projects have the best opportunity of meeting the program objectives “to balance and align the interests of customers, the State, utilities, and clean energy industry stakeholders, while establishing a program that promises to bring the benefits of significant, sustainable, market-based, and, ultimately, grid-supporting, renewables to more Hawaii customers.”

Learning Objectives

Attendees will have the opportunity at this symposium to:

  • Assess types of solar garden and community-scale programs and development scenarios
  • Identify how utilities and collaborating project developers must shape their development approaches to shared/community solar gardens
  • Appraise how the Hawaii CBRE program guidelines compare to other shared/community solar gardens, where they differ, and how the most prolific development results can be incentivized
  • Discuss the important marketing components that drive shared/community solar gardens program subscriptions
  • Assess the important regulatory and consumer protections elements of shared/community solar gardens
  • Evaluate common challenges that utilities and their community-scale collaboration partners confront, and how they can be addressed
  • Discuss case studies of how utilities around the country and their shared/community solar garden partners have collaborated for win-win solutions
  • Compare lessons learned from community solar/garden programs around the country for application in Hawaii
