Solar Conference Opening Coincides with Obama Stroll Through the PV Panels

In an example of either great timing, or a degree of scheduling cooperation that would be the envy of any trade conference, Solar Power International, the largest solar energy conference in the county, kicked off the same day as the Obama administration and its allies began a concerted push for a climate legislation package in the Senate, and with the American public.

Indeed, just as Rhone Resch, CEO of the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA), unveiled a “Solar Bill of Rights” on stage in Anaheim, President Obama was standing in front of a field of photovoltaic solar panels at the ribbon-cutting for a new 25-megawatt solar power plant in Arcadia, Florida, the country’s largest solar PV plant to date. Obama was also there to announce $3.4 billion in grants to help build a nationwide “smart energy grid,” designed to improve energy efficiency, and help integrate solar and other renewables into the national grid.
