SOLAR HOT SHOTS: Toni Bouchard was in the company of Steven Chu, Secretary the U.S. Department of Energy, who addressed more than 600 of the brightest minds in the solar energy industry at the June 13 summit.
SmartPower Vice President Toni Bouchard was invited to attend The SunShot Grand Challenge: Summit and Technology Forum in Denver, Colorado, on June 13. Energy Secretary Steven Chu was present at the event, touting the recent progress in driving down solar costs.
Arizona SmartPower’s leadership in the Arizona Rooftop Solar Challenge program is an essential component of the master solar plan designed to achieve the Energy Secretary’s goals. The Challenge is launching efforts to reduce barriers and lower costs for rooftop solar systems in Arizona by streamlining permitting processes and cutting through the red tape.
The SmartPower team is excited to be a part of the greater national effort to put solar on rooftops across the country, and the Denver conference showed that, more than ever, the future is bright!
