2015 MnSEIA Conference – Midwest Gateway to Solar
MnSEIA is proud to announce that the second annual “MnSEIA – Midwest Gateway to Solar” Conference will be held on November 3rd and 4th, 2015 at the Hilton MSP/Mall of America. Registration will open soon. Applied Energy Innovations is a proud sponsor of this great event.
In 2014 the conference focused on how the state’s 2013 solar legislation would impact Minnesota. This year we are already starting to see the results. With the Made in Minnesota program’s growth, the 431 applications for Community Solar Gardens, and the 1.5% SES set to be surpassed, solar is the fastest growing energy source in Minnesota.
This year the conference will highlight the 2015 solar successes, address the industry’s future challenges and discuss how we can make solar more successful in the years to come. This two-day working conference will bring together solar industry practitioners from all over the country. Everyone is interested in how Minnesota is expanding from a 150 million dollar industry to a 1 billion dollar market in under 5 years.
Like last year, installers, vendors, developers, distributors, manufactures, job trainers, trade unions, utilities and government agencies will hold breakout sessions for our Minnesota, Midwest and national audience. But this year the conference is looking to add solar training events and other education opportunities to the agenda. The goal is to develop the most dynamic program possible.
