Las Vegas (January 24, 2013) – Exhibitor registration is now open for the 2013 GEA Geothermal Energy Expo, to be held September 29 – October 2 at the MGM Grand Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. Hosted by the Geothermal Energy Association (GEA), the Expo is the world's largest gathering of the geothermal industry, and the annually sold-out show provides a unique opportunity for exhibitors to showcase their projects, equipment, services and state of the art technology to the geothermal community.


"Each year, the GEA Expo showcases the tireless innovation and ingenuity of the geothermal industry," said Kathy Kent, Senior Director of Events & Marketing, Geothermal Energy Association. "We're looking forward to seeing even more new ideas and technological advancements in Las Vegas, as these companies are guiding America towards a clean energy future."

The 2012 Expo drew more than 2,000 attendees from 20 different countries to Reno, with the sold out Expo Hall featuring 166 exhibitors from 28 different states and 10 different countries. Exhibitors from 2012 included leading geothermal companies such as Ormat Technologies, Siemens, Schlumberger, Mitsubishi Power Systems, Toshiba International Corporation, as well as a number of U.S. government and international agencies.

As one of the country's geothermal leaders, Nevada is a fitting host for back-to-back GEA Expos. The Silver State continues to pave the way for geothermal development, with a staggering 59 projects in development. Nevada also has more installed geothermal capacity, 510 MW, than any other state besides California.

RBI Solar - Dahlia Has You Covered

What if you could maximize the Ground Coverage Ratio (GCR) on your next project and not have to worry about the complicated variables that come with a tracker system? With a low tilt and clearance design, Dahlia® has the highest GCR of any fixed-tilt system in the marketplace. The system is available in three tilt options (7.5, 10 and 12.5 degrees) and designed to accommodate any sized PV module. The lightweight system is engineered with fewer components, several of which are shipped to job sites pre-assembled. This design feature reduces freight costs and rapidly trims the amount of on-site installation time required to complete construction. Maximizing PV coverage on a site can lead to an increase of production, which creates greater financial return for project owners. Over 100 MW of Dahlia® projects have been deployed across the United States, in regions of variable snow and wind loads. How much can Dahlia® cover and save you on your next project?
