Solar Focus 2020: Breaking Ground
Nov 17 – Nov 18 all-day

Years of hard work in Richmond, Annapolis and the DC Council have paid off. The policy winds are at our backs. To achieve the annual targets we committed to reaching in the Virginia Clean Economy Act, Maryland Clean Energy Jobs Act and DC Clean Energy Omnibus, we need to pivot to implementation. It is time to break ground.

We’ll break ground with a streamlined permitting process. We’ll break ground with solar-friendly local ordinances and supportive counties. We’ll break ground with utility commissions committed to the economic, social, and grid benefits from solar power. We’ll break ground by building our community, broadening who represents our industry.

Break ground with us.

For over a decade, MDV-SEIA has hosted the Solar Focus Conference, bringing together industry professionals, government officials, and thought leaders for panel discussions that focus on a wide range of industry topics, networking opportunities, and more. Join us for a deep dive into Maryland, D.C. and Virginia solar policy on Nov. 17th-18th for keynote presentations, panels, master classes and mini meetups!
