Solar Now! University

"Great program, great people! Solar Now! University is the best organized, content-rich, and authoritative training in Oregon's solar strategy. The team and their presentations took us from "start" to prepared to act as solar ambassadors in our communities"

Art Hill
Vice President Economic Development
Blue Mountain Community College 

"I'm interested pursuing a career in solar, particularly policy and outreach, so the sessions on Community Solar and Policy were incredibly helpful. Not only was the information useful, but the contacts made were just as important to continue solar advocacy in the state. The wide range of experiences and backgrounds of those who attended really made an impression and gave me a much clearer idea where my organization fits in, as well as what may be missing."

Bridget Callahan
Oregon Rural Action

"All of the workshops were thoughtfully planned, pertinent to the solar industry, and very informative. It was great to hear how other Solarize communities have or are implementing their programs.  Evan Elias' presentation on the EIP was informative and, whereas I had discounted the BETC program as being basically extinct, I will relook at that for our customers. Kacia's presentation on Oregon's Solar Market gave me a much better sense of the state of solar throughout Oregon. The Solar 4 Schools presentation was fascinating to me because I am on a school board and want to bring solar to that school. They are really doing some great work."

"I plan to use the resources and the people I met to help me with projects that I am working on at work. The Conference provided useful information and tools. The speakers were accessible and open to help those with questions. It clarified where to go for information for specific projects."
