Topic: "2015 Solar-Related Legislation"
A legislative update for the upcoming session in Austin, including a preview of what the Texas Renewable Energy Industries Association ("TREIA") may be advocating as policy positions, and what NTREG could be doing to advance the renewable cause."
Presenter: Russell Smith, Executive Director of TREIA.
In the 2013 legislative session, solar energy won some important victories, due in part to the dedication and actions by many individuals. At one of our past meetings, a state legislator told us as few as five or six people contacting her could make a difference!
At our special November 1 meeting, we will hear from Russell about the next legislation efforts we can expect from TREIA and others - and what we can do to help.
