A new study from the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) puts some hard
numbers to the benefits realized when U.S. cities streamline their solar PV permitting
processes. Germany's residential solar adoption is attributed to friendly policies and
incentives, but also friendly permitting processes. Meanwhile, in the U.S., "soft" costs
amount for more than half of the installed price for residential solar PV systems in the US.
Various studies have pointed out the results: Customer acquisition costs are ten times
higher in the U.S. vs. Germany.
Many San Diegans are excited about a future powered by 100% renewable energy. San
Diego policy makers will discuss this prospect. The forum will also consider the best
practices from the global solar leader, Germany, to determine what lessons can be
applied to sunny San Diego.
New studies also show that the Green economy continues to grow in California, and
many career seekers want to participate. Green Experts Academy welcomes a top local
recruiter to discuss how to search for a green job, engage recruiters, and the Art of The
Ask in business.

"Adopting best practices from a global solar leader like cloudy Germany only
makes sense for sunny San Diego. Solar adoption is one of the fastest
ways to grow the green economy, clean energy jobs and reduce
greenhouse gas in the atmosphere. It is a question of political will. The
roadmap now exists. San Diego can become the solar capitol of the US."
