#2017 - "Renewable Energy for Illinois Water Utilities” IEPA#5379Delivered on: 2/4/2010
RTC Hours: 1 Total Hours: 1
Presented by: Matt Overeem, Village of Mount Prospect
With businesses being told they should be green and use renewable, sustainable energy– how can a water utility use renewable energy to be green?
This fast paced hour will discuss producing electricity using wind and solar-photovoltaic resources to offset the electrical energy needs of a utility. The discussion will be primarily focused on utility grid interconnected systems using renewable energy.
The seminar will go over the basics of wind and solar, including siting tips. Using examples for both a small and large sized utility, we will size renewable energy systems using both wind and solar resources. We will describe details of a few of the renewable energy projects presently underway or planned in Illinois for utilities. To complete the hour long program, we will highlight additional resources for more information, discuss recent state laws that allow utilities and other governmental bodies like schools and cities to join together to create renewables energy facilities and end with time for question and answers.
