Are power outages the new normal in California? PG&E recently turned off power for over 800,000 Northern California customers, many of whom remained without power for three days. With increased wildfire risks, the prospect of more Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS) are leaving communities wondering how they can manage through outages that could last for days at a time and re-evaluating the need for clean energy backup power

This webinar will explore the increased value of solar renewable energy certificates (RECs) and program participation opportunities for batteries in grid services and CCA programs. There are new and untapped revenue opportunities in California for solar photovoltaic and battery energy storage systems. This session will review these opportunities and discuss the steps to pursuing these value streams.
