Greentech Media put on their US Solar Market Insight conference from Nov 2-4. Gone this year was the "Utility Death Spiral" statement on the lips of many panelists in 2014. This year, USSMI was more focused on the looming threat of the end of the ITC, the high cost of residential customer acquisition, and the talent gap.
Unfortunately, very little airtime was given to the threats that changes to NEM, utility rate cases, and other localized issues play- underscoring again the huge differences between the economies and concerns of utility-scale developers and NEM-dependent commercial and residential solar developers.
Greentech Media did a good job ensuring diversity on their panels and many great women represented their companies.
