  • "I actually think the key ones, the ones that are gonna dominate the market are gonna be as solar continues to be more and more cost competitive and you start putting in more storage associated with that."
  • "The community pushback over the last several years has gotten a bit more intense. We're building projects in Arkansas and Indiana and Illinois and Missouri at Arevon.
