Over the next two days in Austin, Texas, solar companies will gather together to enjoy the 3rd annual Solar Business Festival. This festival is the leading solar conference and exhibition in the state of Texas, and will take place both today, November 27th, and tomorrow, November 28th.
The Solar Business Festival (SBF), is designed to provide a significant business platform for Austin solar companies, as well as other Texas market solar companies and out-of-state solar companies. At this festival, knowledge of the industry can be shared, as well as best practices for marketing, sales, and connectivity. Solar companies looking to expand beyond Texas, and solar companies looking to come to Texas are welcomed. Attendees such as manufacturers, finance providers, project developers, C&I facility managers, and utilities will be there to discuss the various aspects of the industry together. It will be a fantastic time for these Austin solar companies and businesses to connect and grow the solar industry in the state.
Multiple informative sessions will be offered at this event to help businesses and solar installation companies stay up-to-date on the latest information. Sessions will include topics such as energy storage, project financing, smart grids, sustainable buildings, solar initiatives and innovations, utility integration, community solar projects, and more!
One of the many attractions that SBF will have is a showing of a documentary. This event is completely open to the public, and free. The documentary is ‘Solar Roots- the Pioneers of PV’. The film is about the people who worked to bring “solar power to the people”, and discusses the history of solar energy from the 1800’s to the 1980’s. This exciting documentary will not be available for wide public viewing for quite some time, so this will be one of the few times it is showcased. This documentary will be shown Wednesday, November 28th, at 4:30 PM Central.
