What is the Solar Oregon Annual Meeting all about?

Solar Oregon members and non-members alike are welcome and encouraged to attend our Annual Meeting. Our intention is to provide an event that informs, entertains, and provides a forum for networking. Join fellow solar advocates and the Solar Oregon Board and staff to hear about our accomplishments over the past year, our goals for the next, get an overview of policy issues relevant to the upcoming legislative session, hear a presentation on solar and smart grid technology, and vote on our first ever Solar Oregon Awards.

Who should come:

Members, volunteers, and anyone who is solar curious! Have you been thinking about solar for your home? Come meet and talk with Solar Ambassadors, Solar Professionals, staff, board members, and other local solar enthusiasts.

Feature Presentation

Solar and The Smart Grid: “Where we are headed”



As the solar PV industry has developed over the last 20 years, we have been required to ada
pt our technology to an antiquated grid that allows us to deliver energy only when the grid is balanced. With new technology, solar is becoming an integrated solution to some of the problems of the old grid. Cam will be discussing where we are as an industry and where we are headed by looking at demonstration projects that give us a glimpse of the future of Solar in the Smart Grid. Be sure to come and check it out!
