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.


We hope you'll join us for the first solar event!

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.


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.



What is distributed generation and what are some of its benefits? Click on the image below to hear Mark Horst from King Solar explain. Don't stop there! Sign up to attend one of the events in the state.

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!
