Equitable Solar Tariffs

Event Description

Online registration is closed.  To register, email Tram Nguyen at tnguyen@mnbars.org.  If attending in person, you are welcome to register at the door.

Co-hosted by the MSBA Public Utilities Section and the University of  Minnesota Law School Environmental and Energy Law Society (EELS).

Registration and lunch beginning at 12 noon.  The CLE presentation will begin at 12:25 pm.

Distributed energy resources (DERs)—such as rooftop solar, electric vehicles, energy efficiency technology, and smart themostats—are seen as key components of a cost-effective strategy to decarbonize the energy sector. But DERs also fundamentally change existing patterns in the incidence of costs and benefits across consumers who deploy DERs, consumers who don't deploy DERs, utilities, and third parties, thus raising the possibility of "cross-subsidization" and distributional inequality. This presentation will provide an overview of the conceptual and policy approaches to equitable treatment of DERs through the lens of tariffs for distributed solar generation. 

Virtual attendance option is available. However, we encourage you to attend in person if possible to network with colleagues and law students. Please note that masks must be worn inside the law school.
