Many commercial and industrial (C&I) companies have set ambitious renewable energy goals for their facilities and operations. A simple Google search provides a litany of C&I end user approaches to meeting their goals. Emerging strategies include signing utility-scale renewable power purchase agreements (PPAs) directly with the renewable energy provider, and entering into virtual PPAs.

This panel will address this trend as well as:

•   Strategic considerations for power purchase

•   The renewable energy industry’s response to this
    growing demand.

•   The California Public Utility Commission’s (CPUC)
    policies that impact the C&I renewable energy market.
