#20 The Utility-Side of Solar w/ Brian Barr of PECO Green Power Connect Yoooo Sun!!!

    • Education

Brian Barr is Manager of PECO's Green Power Connect team, a group committed to creating more opportunities for solar energy in Greater Philadelphia. 
On this episode we get DEEP into the nitty gritty of how a utility is involved in the process of going solar. Brian's team manages relationships with all solar developers in the area, including Solar States. Their job is to make sure everything is run smoothly and make improvements wherever possible, which they have by dramatically reducing the time it takes your permit to be processed and by adding online payments (!), among other things. The process can get complicated. Brian, Jared, and Micah boil it down. 
And for today's Rapid Shutdown, shutdown unnecessary bureaucracy!
