Very helpful, on point, clear and practical explanation, good real life examples and excellent materials
Last part of program was very good on some of the very "sticky " PPA issues --e.g. change in law provisions , guaranteed output
Very informative — they taught me a lot that I had not understood before. Excellent advice on PPAs. Thanks!
I love to listen to presentations where the people presenting clearly know the subject matter inside and out!
