Solar Energy Legislation Shines: How and Why

Updated: Jun 6, 2019


OCTOBER 10, 2012

The New Jersey Solar Energy Legislation, which Governor Chris Christie signed into law (S-1925) on July 24, 2012, will bring the solar energy industry in New Jersey back to life. The Bill was based, in part, upon the input from significant stakeholders and innovative solar experts. Flaster/Greenberg is making these experts available to you on October 10th in Cherry Hill, NJ, in a panel discussion format.

The program will include a question and answer session and focus on the following:

  • Behind-the-scenes policy considerations and how the new energy legislation impacts different  industry sectors

  • How this law will reshape the industry

  • Working with an expiring cash grant and utilizing the Investment Tax Credit

  • Advantages available to your business as a result of the new legislation

  • Net metering defined and how it differs from net metering aggregation

  • SRECs – what they are and what to do if you have them

  • Trading SRECs: how-who-when

  • Farmland issues

  • Projects on Landfills and Brownfields

  • Past market behavior and future market projections

Answers to key industry questions will be addressed, such as:  

  • What are the key financial variables in solar ventures in New Jersey?

  • What does the new energy legislation mean for large grid supply projects and what does it mean for Brownfields?

  • What are the opportunities for private/public partnerships?


This program has been approved for 1.5 substantive Pennsylvania and New Jersey Continuing Legal Education (CLE) credits. Certificates of attendance will be available.
