Solar Now! University is a small conference that provides community leaders the technical education and background needed  to launch their own solar initiatives. At Solar Now! University you will not only learn from Oregon's solar leaders, you will also establish a network of experts to help you meet your goals. Together, our efforts can make Oregon a leader in energy independence.

The 2013 Conference takes place on September 26th-28th at the Mill Casino Hotel, in North Bend, OR. This year's program will focus on the objectives of the US Department of Energy Rooftop Solar Challenge II aimed at innovative, local-government-level solutions for eliminating market barriers and lowering the costs of grid-tied photovoltaics.

This conference is recommended for municipal and nonprofit leaders, city planners, utility and industry representatives, students, and renewable energy advocates.
