Lorenzo Kristov, former principal for the California Independent System Operator (CAISO), will speak about Community Choice Energy and microgrids. Lorenzo will address our energy future in Davis from the perspective of independence, resilience, and renewable sources. In particular, he can address questions around our new electricity utility, Valley Clean Energy.
Julia Jones is our City of Davis Urban Forest supervisor as part of the Urban Forestry Division, a Tree Davis board member, and an ordained minister of trees, will promote the use of trees for parking lot shade even as VCE suggests solar panels for easy shade. This will be an important discussion. See Julia’s LinkedIn profile for more details.
