Re-Watch BL's Brightfield Webinar Featuring NREL, Illinois and Massachusetts
Some technical difficulties muted our first speaker, but you can pick up with the rest of these great solar speakers and listen again to this illuminating brightfield webinar from May 31st.
Thank you to everyone who joined us for this substantive solar webinar on May 31! A shortened version of the webinar is now available for anyone to view on Youtube. After the introduction, you might want to skip to the 6 minute mark (when the audio was completely repaired and the webinar began in earnest). We apologize for the poor audio to start!

And don't miss this summer's premier brightfield development event Brightfields 2018 - Newark taking place on the beautiful campus of the New Jersey Institute of Technology June 19, 2018!
According to the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), a Brightfield is an abandoned or contaminated property that is redeveloped through the incorporation of solar energy, which can be many different types of solar applications including photovoltaic arrays. Brightfield development leads to economic development, environmental cleanup and improved air quality by bringing pollution free solar energy and high tech manufacturing jobs to brownfield sites. A Brightfield's current or desired use is for solar energy production, or it has been professionally designated as suitable for use as a productive solar site; typically verified by one or more third-party reports. Ready Brightfields have some, if not all, utility infrastructure already in place or may simply be near utility lines amenable to solar power distribution. Use the Brightfield tag on BL as one of the many tags in our handy Taxonomy to post any kind of property, project, RFP, RFQ or RFI or planning effort where the solar is relevant
