Countdown Begins for Solar Power Mid-Atlantic

Solar Power Mid-Atlantic, presented by Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) and Solar Electric Power Association (SEPA), will take place over September 9 and 10 in Atlantic City, NJ.

WASHINGTON, DC – With less than a month to go, the first Solar Power Mid-Atlantic, a new regional event highlighting the strong solar industry in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland and Delaware, is gaining momentum.


Solar Power Mid-Atlantic, presented by Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) and Solar Electric Power Association (SEPA), will take place over September 9 and 10 in Atlantic City, NJ. The two days of programming will offer in-depth sessions and keynotes on the challenges and opportunities in the Mid-Atlantic solar market, as well as exhibits and demonstrations from solar firms and networking events.

"Solar Power Mid-Atlantic is taking place at the perfect time, featuring one of the fastest-growing industries on the East Coast," said SEIA president and CEO Rhone Resch. "The Mid-Atlantic region is a key player in the US solar market. Today, there are nearly 12,000 people across these four states working in solar, and we predict an additional 1.5 gigawatts of solar capacity will be installed here in the next two to three years."

New Jersey is one of the top three states for installed solar capacity nationwide, behind only California and Arizona. Pennsylvania comes in at 11th for installed capacity, and Maryland ranks 14th. Delaware, a much smaller state, ranks 21st but is in the top 10 for installed capacity per capita.

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.
