|« The Great Enphase Install-O-Rama! - UPDATED!||Congress: Extend the Solar Grant Program! »|
Solar Power International 2011 starts next week in Dallas and we will be there, thanks to our friends at Enphase Energy. If you are going to be there as well, we hope you will stop by the Enphase booth and say hi!
Here’s how this came about - as readers of this blog probably know, we have attended the Solar Power conference every year since entering the business back in 2006. However, this year the show has moved out of California - a certainly reasonable decision given the size of solar markets in other states - but given the added expense, we were sadly resigned to giving it a pass. Then, out of the blue, we were contacted by the folks at Enphase who invited us to participate with them in demonstrating how quick and easy their new M215 line is to install. So, along with five other installers from around the country, we will be spending time at the Enphase booth - #1331 - on Tuesday and Thursday morning helping to spread the word about the value of Enphase micro-inverters.
(Full disclosure: this is the first time that Run on Sun has received any stipend or other consideration from Enphase and everything we have ever written about them and their products was done without any inducement of any kind. The stipend in this case is to merely cover our expenses in attending the conference.)
As always, we are really looking forward to attending the show as it is a great way for us to see what innovative products are coming (it was the 2008 show that introduced us to Enphase), touch base with all of our suppliers (who will all be there) and generally get recharged from the collective energy exuded by thousands of other believers in the value of renewable energy in general and solar power in particular. It should be a wonderful show - and will hopefully help to generate some positive press about the solar industry at a time when it desperately needs it.
So if you are attending the show, feel free to reach out via the SPI online social app or just come by the Enphase booth - #1331 on the main floor - on Tuesday or Thursday morning. I’ll be the good-looking guy with the beard, sporting Run on Sun livery! Hope to see you in Dallas!
