The event will strengthen Michigan’s capacity to deliver quality solar energy education and training. Participants will get up-to-date information on technology, research, curricula, as well as reports on the progress of Michigan’s emerging solar industry and jobs market. Sessions include technology, program development, accreditation, instruction, certifications, curricula and lab resources, as well as secondary education activities. Vendors will be on hand to discuss products and services to support educators. The $125 cost includes lunch.
While the focus is on education, anyone involved in solar energy is encouraged to attend. Planners, legislators, community leaders, non-profit organizations, and renewable energy advocates will glean important information to aid their efforts and understanding of solar energy.
