Solar Growth in Georgia, Southeast to Highlight New Conference

Washington, D.C. (PRWEB) April 16, 2015

U.S. solar energy leaders and representatives of top solar companies from an 8-state area will gather in Atlanta, GA, on May 7-8 at the Marriott Marquis for the inaugural Solar Power Southeast conference, co-sponsored by the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) and the Solar Electric Power Association (SEPA).

The Southeast, stretching from Florida to Tennessee, has huge growth potential for solar energy, and states like Georgia are really starting to take off, said SEIA President and CEO Rhone Resch. Solar Power Southeast is an opportunity for industry peers to get together to discuss market outlooks, finance and taxes, innovative products and critically important public policies, such as the solar Investment Tax Credit (ITC).

Today, Georgia host to the conference is one of the fastest-growing solar markets in the nation. The state currently has 161 megawatts (MW) of installed capacity enough to power more than 17,000 homes and that number is projected to double by the end of 2015, according to the recently-released U.S. Solar Market Insight
