Six local leaders speak about what is variously known as the “SEMATECH” or the “photo voltaic project.” They tell you what this is all about, who is involved, what local steps were taken to advance this initiative, why it’s important on a local, state, federal and global basis, and when it might happen.

You’ll learn why Central Florida is in play and against what previous projects its scale might be compared. And you’ll learn what’s left to be done, and what might happen if “game changing” turns out to be “game over.”
