Northwest Solar Expo April 16-20 at the Portland, Oregon Convention Center

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.

Free workshops for the public on Saturday and Sunday will illustrate a full range of available solar and efficiency technologies - including solar electric systems, hot water systems, lighting, heating, and specialty solutions - that are generating and saving energy today for thousands of homes and businesses here in the northwest.
