NEXT WEEK: American wind power returns to California

WINDPOWER comes home to California, a state that was an early pioneer of the modern wind energy industry. From humble beginnings in California’s windy mountain passes, wind power charted a rapid rise to become America’s leading source of renewable energy capacity in 2017, supporting over 100,000 American workers.


ANAHEIM, Ca. - WINDPOWER 2017, American wind power's largest annual conference and exhibition, makes a return to Anaheim next week.

What: WINDPOWER comes home to California, a state that was an early pioneer of the modern wind energy industry. From humble beginnings in California's windy mountain passes, wind power charted a rapid rise to become America's leading source of renewable energy capacity in 2017, supporting over 100,000 American workers.

California's wind power leadership continues today. Senate President Pro Tempore Kevin de León, the California Senate's most powerful member and legislative champion of the state's hallmark 50 percent renewable energy standard law, will provide the keynote address as the conference kicks off on the morning of Tuesday, May 23.

WINDPOWER brings together wind turbine technicians - America's fastest growing career - business leaders, farmers and ranchers, students, and many others from around the U.S. and the world. Attendees will see technology demonstrations, discover emerging trends, and make deals to shape the coming year.

When: May 22-25, 2017 - A regularly updated conference agenda is available here.

SolarEdge Technologies - Solar Inverters, Power Optimizers and PV Monitoring

The SolarEdge PV inverter combines sophisticated digital control technology with efficient power conversion architecture to achieve superior solar power harvesting and best-in-class reliability. The fixed-voltage technology ensures the solar inverter is always working at its optimal input voltage over a wider range of string lengths and regardless of environmental conditions. A proprietary data monitoring receiver has been integrated into the inverter and aggregates the power optimizer performance data from each PV module. This data can be transmitted to the web and accessed via the SolarEdge Monitoring Portal for performance analysis, fault detection and troubleshooting of PV systems.
