Renewable Sources of Electrical Power: Challenges and Promises
February 15, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pmFree
The League of Women Voters for the Charlottesville Area is holding a live, virtual seminar entitled “Renewable Sources of Electrical Power: Challenges and Promises” on February 15, 2022, from noon to 2:00 pm.
To protect our ecological systems, it is crucial that we adopt renewable sources of power. But how do we do it in ways that produce the most benefit and least harm to the environment? It’s not as simple as it seems.
This seminar will address some of the complexities involved in having utility-scale electric power switch from fossil fuels to renewable energy sources. These complexities include the proper siting of solar farms and access to the grid. In addition to solutions for renewable energy development problems, best practices and regulations for solar farms and creative ways of installing small distributive scale solar power will be discussed.
The public is invited to participate in this timely renewable energy discussion. To register for the free event, go to the League’s website at www.lwv-cva.org and follow the seminar event link for instructions. A Zoom link to join the seminar will be emailed to registrants before the event.
Founded in 1920, the League of Women Voters is a non-partisan organization that works to increase understanding of major public policy issues and influences public policy through education and advocacy. The League looks forward to continuing its mission with this free event.
