Concurrent Session – Collaborating for Economic Prosperity and Innovation through Sustainability: Driven Approaches to Utility-Scale Solar Energy

Speakers: Shane Tedder – Campus Sustainability Officer, University of Kentucky
Brad Clark – Edelen Renewables, Director of Workforce Solutions

Kentucky has powered the country for more than a century. The University of Kentucky has been an economic driver in our region for over 150 years. UK is partnering with Kentucky Utilities on a renewable energy initiative that will provide one third of the University’s power, yield greenhouse gas emissions reductions, and drive economic development. The project is projected to deliver significant cost avoidance by locking in our rate for this power for 20 years. The project positions the partners to lead a scalable proof of concept for a just and restorative energy transition.
