US utilities experience with solar business – PG&E, SDG&E, APS, SMUD and GRUD for SolarPV.TV

With independent forecasts indicating that the solar business will continue to grow faster than almost any other industry in the Unites States, the role of electric utilities will increase concurrently. At Solar Power International 2011 in Dallas, we spoke with leading US utilities about their experiences with solar business:

  • Alex Y. Kim – SDG&E (San Diego Gas & Electric)- Director Customer Innovations
  • Eran A. Mahrer – APS – Director, Renewable Energy and Program Planning
  • David E. Rubin – PG&E  (Pacific Gas & Electric Company) – Director Service Analysis
  • Jon Bertolino – SMUD (Sacramento Municipal Utility District) – Superintendent Renewable Generation Assets Power Generation
  • Ed Regan – GRU (Gainesville Regional Utilities) – Assistant General Manager for Strategic Planning

and with two companies working with utilities to learn how utility clients differ from others:

  • Peter Schenck – Jinko Solar – Director of Sales
  • Constantino Nicolaou – PanelClaw – President

The Author

I took an interest in the Australian energy sector close to ten years ago and since then have monitored the trends, technologies and direction of the Australian Energy Market. I was drawn to the Australian solar market in 2008 and since then have worked heavily in the field. I am partnered with national and international solar energy companies, from manufacturers of solar panel and inverter technology, online software developers that introduce tools to quote, monitor and manage solar power systems and media organisations who like myself, closely monitor the solar and renewable energy sector.
