OPC’s symposium will inform District consumers about cutting-edge energy and sustainability issues such as, solar energy, grid modernization and tools for tracking and reducing their energy consumption.  OPC believes these sustainable energy technologies will be important for advancing DC’s clean energy economy goals and empowering consumers.  The general goal of the event is to present sustainable energy issues in layman’s terms, from the perspective of the District consumer who is probably asking: “What does all of this mean for me?”  Moving forward, it will be critical for consumers to understand the changes that are occurring in DC’s energy landscape so that they can make informed decisions regarding their energy use in the future. Horizons 2015 will feature many dynamic speakers, food and prizes and, most importantly, will be a forum for District residents to raise their questions, concerns and ideas regarding DC’s energy future.
