On Wednesday, Dec. 11, APPA’s Demonstration of Energy & Efficiency Developments (DEED) program will hold a webinar on a recently completed grant, "An Introduction to Community Shared Solar Programs for Public Power," from 2 – 3 p.m., Eastern time. 

Community solar is one of several ways to engage customers in accelerating distributed solar development, which may be more cost-effective and lower-risk than most conventional distributed solar programs today.

Stephen Frantz of the Sacramento Municipal Utility District in California, along with Jill K. Cliburn and Joe Bourg of Cliburn and Associates, LLC, will provide a public power perspective on community solar to help participants understand the risks and benfits. 

The webinar is worth 0.1 continuing education units and 1.0 professional development-hour credits.

The webinar will be offered at no cost to DEED program members, $89 for APPA members and $179 for non-members. For more information and to register, visit under Webinars or contact Michelle Zaccagnino at or 202/467-2942.
