Solar Power Film Screenings and Workshops


 

 

Do you know where your power comes from?


Do you know if your utility offers a clean energy program?


What would it take to convert your home or business to solar power? 


Through a series of film screenings and workshops in Kansas communities, the Climate + Energy Project hopes to get more Kansans thinking and talking about the state’s solar energy potential.


Shaping the Future: How Should Kansas Adapt to the Growth of Rooftop Solar?

Each of the events will include an evening screening of "Happening: A Clean Energy Revolution,” a film by Jamie Redford that tracks his journey as he learns about clean energy, plus a panel discussion and question-and-answer session with audience members.

Bonus! Action Guide from the Redford Center.


 


Business Workshop: Building a Brighter Solar Economy in Kansas 

During workshops, participants can learn more in-depth information about distributed generation—the term for technologies such as solar panels or wind turbines that generate electricity at or near where it will be used.

A discussion guide, "Shaping the Future: How Should Kansas Adapt to the Growth of Rooftop Solar?” published in June 2017 by the Kansas Leadership Center, outlines the issues surrounding distributed generation.


The Climate + Energy Project and the Clean Energy Business Council will present the events with host organizations in each community. Stay tuned for details!
