Greetings Solar Friend,
We are pleased to announce that our annual conference will be held next year at the Pennsylvania State University (PSU) on July 28-30, 2015! There will be many activities to go along with our technical sessions, including a tour of the MorningStar solar decathlon site, other solar house tours, opportunities for cave tours, world-class mountain biking, and famous ice cream at the Penn State Berkey Creamery! The Penn Stater is an exceptional all inclusive conference facility. We are excited to expand our Emerging Professionals program as part of our academic affiliation with PSU.
We are inspiring an era of innovation to speed the transition to a sustainable energy economy! I would like to see us transition to 100% renewables by 2050.
