About this Event
It’s always sunny in Chester County! On-site solar energy for big energy users can save money and help meet sustainability goals. With ample incentives available, 2023/24 is a great time to get the ball rolling on evaluating solar and energy storage options.At the Solar Adopters Conference attendees will learn about how corporations, office and education campuses, agricultural producers and shopping centers can take advantage of the latest technology, available incentives, RFP guidance, and support from local governments and the electric utility to realize energy price stability, carbon emissions reduction and long-term cost benefits.
