Here Comes the Sun!
on Sustainability Now!
Sunday, January 9th, 5-6 PM on KSQD
January 2022 is Solar Energy Month on Sustainability Now! On Sunday, January 23rd, we will be welcoming Dr. Ahmad Faruqui, an energy economist who has been deeply involved in solar electricity issues in California. We will be talking about the pending decision by the California Public Utilities Commission to impose “grid participation charges” on households with rooftop solar.
To get listeners prepared for Dr. Faruqui, we have assembled a show that draws on past episodes focused on solar. We’ll be hearing from: Dr. Dustin Mulvaney, a SJSU professor and solar energy expert, to talk about PG&E; Fred Keeley, who has been deeply involved in electricity law and regulation for more than 20 years, to talk about the future of electric utilities in California; Allie Detrio, Chief strategist at Reimagine Power in San Francisco, who will run us through how solar law and regulation functions in California, and Bob Stayton, who will talk about his Solar Dividends proposal, to give every Californian a month basic income from the sale of solar electricity.
That’s on Sustainability Now! Sunday, January 9th, 2021, from 5-6 PM right here on KSQD 90.7 FM and KSQD.org, streaming on the internet.
