Inc. 500|5000 recipient and President of New Jersey-based Pfister Energy, Wayne Pfisterer, will speak about entrepreneurial success at an exclusive event for select CEOs

New York, NY (July 8, 2011)- Inc. Magazine's Business Owners Council has invited New Jersey's own Wayne Pfisterer, President of Pfister Energy in Paterson, New Jersey to speak at a special networking event for CEOs on July 20, 2011 at the New York World Trade Center. The program entitled "How I Grew My Company," will include presentations from two Inc. 500|5000 CEOs, including Pfisterer.

The event is an initiative of Inc. Magazine's Business Owners Council, a membership organization for top entrepreneurs and owners of closely-held businesses. As a result of his accomplishments leading Pfister Energy, Wayne Pfisterer is a member of The Council. The purpose is to shift focus from conservative discussion, to the more personal experience of entrepreneurial struggle and success.

As New Jersey tumbles up and down the hills of competition, on a canvas of economic and energy policy change, it is often challenging to effectively sell renewable energy projects and achieve continued growth in the midst of such market uncertainty. However, amid the turmoil, Inc.'s Business Council Executive Director Lewis Schiff spotted exceptional leadership at Pfister Energy and has called its President to speak at the event.

Lewis Schiff stated: "I've always enjoyed spending time in the company of other entrepreneurs, fellow travelers on the high seas of business, creators of wealth, captains of industry. Each business owner is an influencer in his or her own right, oftentimes craving the company of those who see the world in a similar light. When these pioneers get together, anything is possible."

Inc.'s headquarters in the New York World Trade Center will welcome qualified CEOs to participate in discussions from 12:30-2:30PM on July 20, 2011 at no charge. Topics will include growth strategies, mergers and acquisitions and licensing and franchising. To learn more about the event, please visit

Kipp & Zonen - DustIQ the novel soiling monitoring solution for solar panels

Soiling of the panel glass is one of the major problems in the rapidly expanding solar energy market, with the attendant loss of efficiency and reduction in performance ratios. Now, there's a new, simple and very cost-effective alternative. Based on Kipp & Zonen's unique Optical Soiling Measurement (OSM) technology, DustIQ can be easily added to new or existing solar arrays and integrated into plant management systems. The unit is mounted to the frame of a PV panel and does not need sunlight to operate. It continuously measures the transmission loss through glass caused by soiling, so that the reduction in light reaching the solar cells can be calculated.
