New Podcast: Clean Energy and Rural America's Economic Rebound

Representatives from TVA, Google, and Origis Energy recently came together for an episode on the Currents Podcast from Norton Rose Fulbright.

The episode, which dropped this week, features Reid Spolek, energy lead at Google, Chris Hansen, vice president of origination and renewables at TVA, Spencer Sessions, senior manager of economic development at TVA and Johan Vanhee, chief commercial officer and chief procurement officer at Origis Energy.

The group discusses the role of clean energy in rural America’s economic rebound, how each organization is involved with solar and energy storage in rural American communities, how the projects affect low-revenue-base communities, the challenges and lessons learned from the recently announced Skyhawk project, a 100-MW solar installation in Tennessee, and how large corporate energy buyers like Google are viewed.
