PA Solar Center's executive director Sharon Pillar and Solar Ambassador Lead Phyllis Blumberg, PhD, on April 14 at 6:00 p.m. for an update about newly introduced legislation that will increase Pennsylvania's renewable energy goals.

In February, Senators Dan Laughlin (R-Erie) and Art Haywood (D-Montgomery) announced plans to introduce legislation to increase the solar share under the Alternative Energy Portfolio Standards from 0.5 to 5.5 percent by 2026. Read more here.
