November 27, 2018 Environmental Breakfast

Illinois Photovoltaic (PV) Solar Energy: Past, Present and Future

With Special Guest Speaker: Brad Klein, Senior Attorney, Environmental Law & Policy Center

The A&WMA Lake Michigan States Section and the Union League Club Environmental Committee are pleased to invite you to join us on Tuesday, November 27, 2018 for a presentation by Brad Klein, Senior Attorney, Environmental Law & Policy Center where he works on energy and environmental litigation and policy across the Midwest. Recent legislative changes have made Illinois a hot bed of renewable photovoltaic (PV) solar energy activity. Come and hear to how this was done from a lead attorney involved in the process.

Brad specializes in renewable energy policy, and has been deeply involved in the negotiation, drafting, and ongoing implementation of the renewable energy provisions of the Illinois Future Energy Jobs Act.  Over the past twelve years, Brad has worked on interconnection and net metering standards, solar program design, clean energy financing, rate design and other policies at state legislatures and utility commissions in eleven Midwest and Great Plains states.

Brad previously served as a federal judicial law clerk in Washington, D.C., was a law fellow at the Environmental Law Institute, and was an environmental engineer at CH2M Hill, Inc. Brad received his law degree with honors from New York University School of Law and received a bachelor’s degree in chemical engineering from Washington University in St. Louis.
