UofL's Sustainability Council is proud to host the 2022 Annual Meeting of the Kentucky Solar Energy Society, whose mission is to promote the use of renewable energy, energy efficiency, and conservation in Kentucky through education, advocacy, networking, and demonstration of practical applications. This meeting is free and open to all KySES members, subscribers, students, guests and the general public interested in learning more about solar power in Kentucky. Expect an interactive day with participation from attendees and presenters on the state of solar generation and updates from KySES board members on efforts such as solar legislation and Solar Over Louisville.

Meeting topics will include:
• An address from Louisville Mayor Fischer
• New tech in solar; an overview of the solar industry in Kentucky
• Mega trends nationally in pricing & the impact on Kentucky
• Louisville’s highly successful Solar Over Louisville program - apply by June 30th! (http://100percentlou.com/2040)

• A boom in large (merchant) solar Installation applications in KY
• Presentation on batteries for solar applications
• Update on Solare Scam Artists
• Solar 101 - Before you buy info.
The meeting is free and open to the public and will also feature a free catered lunch and plenty of time to network with fellow solar and renewable energy supporters.

There will also be a Solar Over Louisville Enrollment Workshop, Saturday, May 28th, at 1:30 pm, at the Shawnee Branch Library, 3912 West Broadway. Louisville Metro Government and the Louisville Sustainability Council have launched the Solar Over Louisville program which makes it easy for residents and small businesses in the greater Louisville region to go solar by providing a 12-19% bulk purchasing discount on solar installation and connecting participants with a vetted solar installer. Going solar saves energy costs, potentially increases property value, supports local solar jobs, and helps Louisville achieve its 100% clean energy goals! Join this workshop to learn more about what you need to know before going solar - including the benefits, cost, whether your property is a good fit, and more! You will hear directly from our vetted solar installation partner, Solar Energy Solutions and be able to ask questions. Learn more and register for the workshop at http://100PercentLou.com/2040.

As always, our feature is followed by your community action calendar for the week, so get your calendars out and get ready to take action for sustainability NOW!
