Solar Power International is Just Around the Corner, August 2019

August 22, 2019

Despite my slight reservations about Solar Power International being held in Salt Lake City this year, I’m getting excited to go. After so many years in the industry, it really is like an annual reunion.

This year, the talk on the show floor will be interesting. With tariffs and the ITC stepdown weighing on the conversation, I’m looking forward to seeing how that pairs with growth in installed capacity year over year (Report: SEIA). 

Really it all comes down to how excited I am to learn something new about solar, see people I enjoy conversing with, and take in a lot of new visuals as I try to find some time to walk the show floor.

If you’re going to SPI, please reach out and let’s grab a coffee or meet up. See you in Salt Lake!
