WEBINARS: Solar for Apartment Buildings & Rent Control; Community Solar in Cook County & the Midwest
IREC recently hosted two webinars.
Solar for Apartment Buildings: Addressing Rent Control
Erica McConnell and Edward Schexnayder, Shute, Mihaly & Weinberger LLP, attorneys for IREC, discussed ways in which local jurisdictions could (and have) sought to overcome these challenges while still preserving the important role that rent control plays in keeping rents stable and affordable. While the focus was on California’s virtual net metering (VNM or NEM-V) tariffs and rent control policies, this discussion is applicable to any jurisdiction with rent control and to programs enabling multifamily solar, including states with community solar policies. IREC, in partnership with the Center for Sustainable Energy and with support from US DOE Solar Market Pathways, hosted the webinar. Listen
