Abstract: During this chapter meeting, VSHE members will get the opportunity to learn first-hand how Carilion effectively installed a cost-saving solar array on-site through Secure Futures Solar. A four-part presentation will outline the benefits of going solar specifically for the healthcare community. First, Carilion staff will provide a glimpse of their customer experience and describe the benefits they have received, such as meeting sustainability targets for stakeholders and positive media attention. Next, the CEO will explain the unique financial model for no upfront cost installation and how hospitals will earn savings over time through Power Purchase Agreements. The Secure Futures CTO will then explain how the solar panels technically work, the operation and maintenance of the panels, and the feasibility of installation at healthcare facilities.  Finally, the Technical Manager will show how Secure Futures’ monitors energy through the ARMS system to maximize solar productivity. The presentation will be followed by an on-site solar tour with an opportunity for questions to be answered.
