Key PV stakeholders gear up to meet in San Jose

Global PV experts are set to create a robust strategy to drive down LCOE in San Jose on 17-18 October

The Utility Scale PV Plant Optimization Summit USA is only one week away, taking place on 17-18 October at the Airport Holiday Inn, San Jose, and over 150 of PVs most influential figures, innovators and hands-on experts have now confirmed to attend.


The event will bring together key stakeholders and the most experienced international experts to discuss the key roadblocks the PV industry is facing to drive down LCOE, looking at plant design and construction, component selection, grid integration and long-term O&M strategies.

The technical challenges faced during the development of current projects will form a critical part of the discussion with First Solar, SunPower, NRG Energy, Solar Reserve and Gestamp Solar all confirmed to participate. Each developer will share their expertise on how to improve utility scale plant performance, referencing and providing data for large-scale projects either under construction or operating in the United States.

Organizers PV Insider have also confirmed that leading utilities including San Francisco Water, Power, Sewer (SFPUC), Tucson Energy Power, Colorado Springs Utilities, SMUD and Imperial Irrigation District will be on hand to outline how utilities can work with plant owners to improve power supply reliability and maximize output.

GreenFasten™ solar panel roof mount hardware, watertight, USA made

GreenFasten™ solar panel roof mount hardware, watertight, USA made

The GreenFasten™ - GF1 system utilizes the patented watertight technology EcoFasten Solar® is known for. The flashing is fit with our EPDM rubber bushing and when used with a compatible EcoFasten Solar compression bracket (milled with countersink), a watertight seal is created, which protects the integrity of the roof. Requiring just a single fastener (lag bolt or self-drilling), GreenFasten provides the fastest install in the industry and will not void roofing manufacturer's warranties. Backed by IAPMO certification, GreenFasten delivers a mounting solution for all new or existing (retrofit) composition shingle roofs, and is the most cost-effective solution available. Like all of the solar roof mount solutions in our line of products, GreenFasten is made in the USA using recycled materials.
