SimpleRay, a leading distributor of solar energy products, is sponsoring the inaugural Midwest Solar Expo at the Downtown Minneapolis Hilton on May 16th.
A hybrid event designed for businesses and consumers, the Midwest Solar Expo will provide networking opportunities for hundreds of solar executives, investors, strategic partners and adopters. The conference will feature more than 30 exhibitors, nine breakout sessions focusing on solar finance and market opportunities, five networking breaks and a cocktail reception. Additionally, MREA is providing NABCEP accredited training for installers.
The Midwest Solar Expo will feature keynote speaker John Farrell of the Institute for Local Self-Reliance, in addition to other notable local and national figures to be announced in the coming weeks.
Consumers interested in solar can take part in a unique “Solar 101” education track discussing solar panels, opportunities, financing and more. Attendees will have the chance to interface with solar leaders that understand how to capitalize on solar investments.
“The Midwest market is where the East and West coast markets were back in 2005,” said SimpleRay CEO Geoffrey Stenrick. “As these markets mature, the need for dialog, education and training becomes increasingly more important to ensure long-term economic growth.”
The Midwest Solar Expo will be the foremost educational resource for solar in the Midwest. Minnesota is rapidly becoming a leading state for solar incentives, paving the way for neighboring states.
