In 1991, Georgia underwent a paradigm shift in how we do energy planning. The IRP--a comprehensive energy plan written by GA Power, and approved by the GA PSC--determines what plants are closed or built, how much energy efficiency is funded, and how much solar we do via the power company. The legislator who sponsored that bill in 1991 will join me to share that bit of unknown history on Wednesday, March 27th at the NCR World Headquarters (a dual LEED Platinum building) from 10am to 11:30am.
The event will be held at 862 Spring Street (NCR) on ground level (behind the coffee show) in the Tech Talk indoor amphitheater. Park in the visitors parking area (free) or on the street (credit card required), or take Marta to the Midtown Station and come south several blocks.
The fast-moving program features:
Commissioner Tim Echols, Emcee
Brain Valeyko, NCR
Boyd Pettit, former legislator, father of the IRP
Lance Haman, Marketing Regulatory Affairs Manager, Georgia Power
Allie Kelly, Executive Director, The Ray Highway
