Will the homes you’re building now be assets or liabilities on a Smart Grid? Many customers find solar intriguing. As you respond to customer demand and install solar electric systems, what happens when Midwest homeowners are sending power pack into the grid? Join a lively discussion to learn about solar system purchasing trends, utility approaches for meeting this new demand, home electrification and storage systems. This panel includes local utilities, renewable experts and champions of net zero and net positive homes. As a homeowner, business owner, builder, or remodeler you will learn how the buildings you live in and work on can help the electric grid become safer and more resilient.
