Speaker: Jeff Berggren

Solar is the fastest growing renewable energy source and is becoming more cost effective. Jeff Berggren will be giving a presentation on the benefits of community and individual solar. Berggren will give examples of communities throughout Nebraska that have built community solar arrays and how they have benefited from them. Jeff has been very active in supporting solar. As a member of Nebraskans for Solar he has met with governors, testified before the Natural Resource Committee, and helped many utilities adapt their processes to accept solar more easily.
