We’re shining a light on the impact of solar in Tennessee. The International Energy Agency’s Renewables 2022 report predicts that in the next few years, the biggest source of electricity will be solar power. Meanwhile, the Inflation Reduction Act will usher in more high-paying solar jobs and tax credits for solar installations at homes, businesses and community solar projects. But what does this all mean for Tennesseans? Today, we’re speaking with Matt Kisber, Chairman of the Board at Silicon Ranch Corporation, about how this Nashville solar development company grew into a billion-dollar powerhouse. We’ll discuss innovative solar projects, how solar can transform rural communities and the outlook for the industry in our state.Learn more about TAEBC and Silicon Ranch Corporation.Thank you to our podcast sponsor FirstBank.

The age of the electric vehicle is here. Automakers are all in and the federal government is offering incentives to encourage the public to go electric and to create the infrastructure needed to enable wide-spread adoption. We need public EV charging stations to be just as available across the country as gas stations are now. To make this possible, Knoxville-based Pilot Company is teaming up with General Motors to build out the nation’s charging infrastructure, particularly along American highways. The plan is to create 2,000 EV charging stalls at up to 500 Pilot Flying J travel centers to help make convenient, cross-country EV travel a reality. Today, we’re speaking to Tim Langenkamp, VP of Business Development - Sustainability at Pilot, about this partnership and building out Tennessee’s EV infrastructure one gas station at a time.Learn more about TAEBC and Pilot.Thank you to our podcast sponsor FirstBank.
