Our meeting will run from 11am and until 2:30pm, and will include a tour at the end of the day of OATI's facility and microgrid.  Because of security and privacy, OATI has special visitor requirements - please review them below and RSVPs will be required.

In addition to learning about microgrids from Open Access Technology International (OATI), we are revisiting PACE financing to learn about the giant leaps that source of project funding has taken since we last focused on it during one of our chapter meetings (4-5 years ago).  We are grateful to have experts Peter Lindstrom (CERTs) and Peter Klein (St. Paul Port Authority) on the agenda.  Plus we'll squeeze in a CIP and policy update from the Department of Commerce.
