NAF Green Growth Event

NAF GREEN GROWTH EVENT…. As we’ve been promoting all week, in the new issue of the Washington Monthly, editor Mariah Blake takes a close look at the solar-power boom underway in Gainesville, Florida, where an innovative “feed-in tariff” program offers a promising answer for the whole country.

The New America Foundation will host a discussion on Mariah’s piece and the policy debate today, from 12:15 to 1:45 p.m. eastern. Mariah will be joined by James Bradbury, Senior Legislative Aid for Climate and Energy for Rep. Jay Inslee (D-Wash.); Toby Couture, Energy and Financial Markets Analyst for the Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory; David Owens, Executive Vice President at the Edison Electric Institute; and Ed Regan, Assistant General Manager for Strategic Planning at Gainesville Regional Utilities.

If you’re in D.C. and want to attend, the event will start in about 45 minutes at the NAF offices at 1899 L Street NW, Suite 400. If you’re not in D.C. and want to watch, I’m embedding a video feed below.
