Upcoming Webinar with BayWa r.e.
Debating the State of Storage in 2019 - Webinar
Date: October 9th, 2019
Time: 1:00 PM EST

The Debate:
  • Are consumers catching on? If so, what is motivating them to add storage to their project?
  • Are solar contractors well-prepared and well-positioned to sell and install this technology?
  • What is it going to take to get full-scale adoption?
  • What are the roadblocks contractors face? From the product standpoint, the utility, the consumer?
  • What impact will California’s Title 24 have on storage adoption, if any?
  • What tools should solar contractors have to be ready for the storage boom?
Our panelists will debate these, and other important storage questions, in the first installment of a new educational series from BayWa r.e. and NABCEP.
