2014 Solar Now! University Conference


SNU Logo

June 13 & 14    Hillsboro, Oregon

Solar Now! University is a conference for those who make - and want to make - Oregon solar projects happen.

Its where community officials connect with industry experts; where big ideas meet hands-on information; where renewable energy leaders illuminate where solar is now - and how to help steer it.

This year’s conference is hosted by the City of Hillsboro, about 20 miles east of Portland. It begins Thursday evening, June 12, with a Meet-and-Greet at the U.S. headquarters of SolarWorld, a global leader in photovoltaic module production. In addition to networking, attendees can take a behind-the-scenes tour of the company’s manufacturing facility, the largest such production plant in the Americas.

Friday features a full day of sessions at Hillsboro’s main library. This year’s program is still being finalized but sessions will cover such topics as:

  • Solar options for homes, businesses, public buildings and communities

  • Case studies of installed projects

  • Financing Options

  • Tax credits, incentives & grants

  • Laws and policies that impact solar
  • Solar permitting and codes
  • Technology advancements


Friday also includes a luncheon and a dinner, still more opportunities to network and learn.

More sessions will be offered Saturday morning, followed by a luncheon and afternoon tours of local solar projects. Attendees will have a choice of tours, to be announced.

Come to Solar Now! University in Hillsboro June 13-14, 2014. You’ll connect with other solar users, advocates and experts and get information you can actually apply—now, and for the future. Join us for our conference kick-off Meet and Greet, June 12th 6:00 pm at SolarWorld.
