California is leading the way on renewable energy, likely seeing 50% or greater of its electricity from clean energy sources by
2020. As a result, the way we produce, transmit, distribute and purchase power is different from just a few years ago. Our panel discussion will include industry leaders from Contra Costa County, MCE, Stantec, and others who will speak to their efforts on energy / land use policy, stakeholder coordination, project siting, and consumer demand for electricity from clean energy sources.
