Secure business in one of the biggest growth markets for solar & storage

Second only to China, the USA solar and storage markets reached new highs in 2018 and the first half of 2019.

Surpassing 2 million solar installations in May 2019, the market enjoyed its largest Q1 in history with 2.7 GW installed, and 4.9 GW of large scale solar projects in construction. Storage is also coming of age.

Spurred by Order 841 and individual state targets, Q1 2019 was also a bumper year for energy storage with 148.8 MW installed.

Be part of the solution in October

As the market grows, new challenges emerge.

The 2019 event is geared towards enabling all participants to make money from solar and storage projects.

We will equip attendees with a post-ITC toolkit that will enable them to maximize the value of PPAs, lower the cost of capital, find new markets to develop in, and meet new partners with capital to invest or shovel ready projects.
