‘We track it … now you can, too.’

What is Solar Eyes & Ears and What Can it Do for Your Organization?

  • E&E allows you to cover unfolding activity:
    • More comprehensively than your existing staff, by adding additional eyes and ears
    • More cost-effectively than trying to cover everything through in-house staffing
    • Quickly, if your capabilities in the region are ramping up
  • It is intended to:
    • Screen regional activity, sorting through the vast set of potentially relevant items to be on the lookout for
    • Cover topics subscribers have identified as important to them, or for items that we believe they should be aware of
    • Keep you informed on RP&L developments, bringing critical issues to the surface in a timely manner
    • Identify issues, challenges and opportunities early that might otherwise be missed so that you can plan accordingly and avoid surprises
    • Ensure that you are aware of opportunities to participate in the regulatory process and have enough time to respond
    • Provide top-level analysis on the significance of each development

Who Subscribes to Solar E&E?

  • Organizations:
    •  looking to extend their capabilities. If your headquarters or concentration of efforts are elsewhere, and/or you are lightly-staffed for this function in New England.
    • seeking a cost-effective alternative means to maintain their capabilities.  If you are looking to track and understand RP&L developments more efficiently and cost-effectively than fully staffing them with in-house capabilities
    • ramping up their capabilities.  If your business is small and growing, or currently too small for busy key personnel to track RP&L developments, Eyes & Ears can help you as ramp up , allowing you to hit the ground running.  You can also use E&E to educate and train transitioning personnel until your business grows to the scale that it can take the function in-house.
  • Policymakers interested in understanding regional precedents or experiences of other states implementing similar or related laws, policies or regulations.  These could provide ideas or guidance on what has been tried elsewhere, and can identify relevant experiences, synergies, opportunities for collaboration, and potential policy interactions or conflicts.
