The 2nd annual VA SUN Solar Congress is set for Saturday, October 14, and will focus on solar in the Commonwealth.
The free event, which is open to the public, offers a solar 101 information session, as well as sessions on growing solar in your community and electric vehicles and solar, solar jobs in Virginia, solar energy and storage and a solar case study.
The solar 101 information session will outline the basics of how solar works on a home or small business in Virginia and the incentives available. The “growing solar in your community” session will allow solar homeowners to share their experiences of spreading solar throughout their communities with one another. The electric vehicles and solar session will focus on the technology, costs and charging considerations of electric vehicles.
Other sessions include one on solar jobs in Virginia, designed to inform attendees about the variety of solar jobs currently available in the Commonwealth and why these jobs – and solar – are good for the economy here. Another will focus on a case study on local do-it-yourself solar and barn-raising initiatives, during which a group of community members will explain the process they went through to implement non-traditional models for solar. Lastly, for those who are interested in solar and energy storage, the afternoon will include a session the latest information for residential, commercial and multiple solar installations.
