Solar Power Southeast has proven to be the premier solar event in the region. The event has grown each year, starting with the inaugural event in 2015 where over 200 companies in attended. In 2016, over 300 companies attended the event. 2017 brought a career fair, over 600 attendees and 40+ exhibitors in the sold-out exhibit hall. The growth is in part due to the exponential solar growth that’s happening in the southeastern United States, as well as the passion the of the region.
The focus is to bring together those that are doing business in the region, or would like to conduct more business in the region to discuss strategies, market trends in the southeast, policy updates that impact businesses, and numerous networking opportunities to make more connections.
Highly regarded companies and organizations helped make #SolarSE 2017 be an event to remember. The event brought together industry leaders and innovators to share ideas and best practices for expanding the Southeast’s solar energy market and to network and do business.
