Community Solar with Rep. Aaron Kaufer
Join the Pennsylvania Conservative Energy Forum (PennCEF) for an online discussion with Representative Aaron Kaufer on the status of community solar policy in Pennsylvania. Representative Kaufer has spent years working to advance community solar policy that will benefit the cause of clean and renewable energy in the Commonwealth by allowing businesses, residences and farms to share in a common solar installation. Estimates are that 2 billion dollars of investments are waiting for this enabling policy change.

If you are considering installing solar, work in the industry or simply interested in Pennsylvania being solar-friendly, please join us for this opportunity with Representative Kaufer.

The Pennsylvania Conservative Energy Forum (PennCEF) was created by conservatives, for conservatives who want the Commonwealth to adopt an all-of-the-above diversified energy portfolio that includes an emphasis on moving to clean, renewable energy and energy efficiency technologies. PennCEF believes that all-of-the-above energy policy will help create good paying local jobs across the state, improve our grid and national security, conserve our natural resources, and position America to compete in the global energy marketplace, while securing energy independence.
