The Land of Lincoln Chapter is planning some great events:
Emerging Solar in Illinois
July 18, 2018 2 PM - 6 PM
Pinstripes, Oakbrook IL
The new Illinois Future Energy Jobs Act (FEJA) which went into effect June 1, 2017, requires an updated Renewable Portfolio Standard (RPS) in Illinois. This new RPS directs that solar energy use be expanded, increasing Illinois’ solar capacity from about 75 MW to about 2,700 MW by 2030. With these new requirements, there comes a critical need to examine disposal, recycling or repurposing of used/broken solar panels to ensure protection of the environment.
Join the SWANA Land of Lincoln Chapter’s YPs and hear about solar projects, end of life panel recycling efforts nationally and in Illinois as well as the FEJA and what it means for solar in Illinois. Then stay to network and mingle over refreshment, light food and bowling.
Registration is now open. Please use the PayPal links below to register online:
