IREC’s Shay Banton, Regulatory Program Engineer and Energy Justice Policy Advocate, will be speaking on the “Making California’s grid more inclusive and equitable” panel on June 26. Electric Rule 21 describes interconnection, operating, and metering requirements but it doesn’t consider energy equity. Yet such consideration is baked into California’s policies via SB 350. This session will explore ways to make California’s grid a more inclusive and equitable one. Panelists will explain how the interconnection process can be a barrier to renewable energy, discuss the financing challenges facing LMI projects and incentives to develop them, and innovative and collaborative projects in CA.
