No matter what your budget is there is a clean energy solution available today. From utility portfolio options, to energy efficiency, to generating your own clean energy, a solution within your budget exists today to respond to the energy concerns we are all facing.

Northwest Solar Expo 2008 is the third annual event offering professional training and business to business networking opportunities, along with current renewable energy and energy efficiency options that families and businesses can implement today.


The Expo will be open to professionals only on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday and open to the public on Saturday and Sunday.

Professional training on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday will cover solar programs and incentives, net metering, installation best practices, building codes and legal issues as well as offer basic and advanced training for solar installers. Courses will also be available for those interested in becoming an Oregon Tax Credit Certified Technician and/or an Energy Trust Solar Trade Ally.

Installers and designers interested in the latest information on renewable energy and energy efficiency products and installations methods should plan to attend the event. It's a great opportunity to see what others in the industry are doing and what you need to do to remain competitive.

LG Solar Unveils NeON R with Enhanced Aesthetics and Energy Savings

The NeON R module features "Back Contact" cell technology delivering an entirely black panel that is aesthetically pleasing and energy efficient. The cell's seamless, surface blends perfectly into nearly all rooftop designs while the module's electrodes are positioned on the rear of the cell. Using LG's N-type cell structure, the panels produce 365W of energy, up to 7.3kWp, compared to 5.8kWp of the p-type cell. The module's new design minimizes LID, thereby delivering a longer lifespan and increased energy output.
