Come to Solar Now! University in Hillsboro June 13-14, 2014
Solar Now! University (SNU) is a conference for those who make and want to make solar projects happen in the Pacific Northwest. It’s where community leaders connect with industry experts; where big ideas meet hands-on information; and where renewable energy leaders illuminate where solar is now and how to help steer it.
It begins Thursday evening, June 12th, with a Meet-and-Greet at the U.S. headquarters of SolarWorld, a global leader in photovoltaic module production. In addition to networking, attendees can take a behind-the-scenes tour of the company’s manufacturing facility, the largest such production plant in the Americas.
Friday features a full day of sessions at Hillsboro’s main library. Saturday offers opportunity to see solar installations in the field.
This year’s program sessions will cover topics on:
• Community Solar – the next big thing in solar development at the local level
• Innovation and the sharing of solar best practices
• Solar options for homes, businesses, public buildings and communities
• Financial re-engineering, tax credits, incentives and grants
• Solarize train-the-trainer track
• Laws and policies that impact solar in the Pacific Northwest
• Solar Oregon and City of Hillsboro are part of Northwest Solar Communities / a Rooftop Solar Challenge II grant program sponsored by the U.S. Dept of Energy. We’ll inform about this work to remove “soft cost” barriers to solar in our region.
