Kicking the Can: Solar End of Life
Date & Time
Tuesday, May 2, 2023, 3:55 PM - 4:15 PM
Janette Freeman

The end of life for many of today's operating solar projects is still years away. But, planning for what happens after those projects end is a problem for today. We'll discuss some of the issues that communities are concerned about, the end effect of projects on farmland, and strategies to create a standardized decommissioning process that the industry as a whole can follow.

  • How can we ensure that projects are developed responsibly?
  • Which strategies are effective in reducing risks associated with decommissioning solar projects?
  • How do we communicate the benefits of solar projects to the local community?
  • How can the solar industry develop transparent guidelines to create consistent decommissioning as projects reach the end of their life?
