This webinar will explain how to evaluate, design and implement a cost-effective CLEAN program.

The target audiences for the webinar include utility renewable energy program managers; strategic planning; policy and regulatory staff; solar project developers; local and regional state energy policy makers and stakeholders.
Following the webinar, all registrants will receive a link to the Local CLEAN Program Guide, which provides a step-by-step guide to lead utilities through the process of designing and enacting successful CLEAN programs using global best practices.
