Testimonials from previous Solar PV Operations USA conferences...

Very relevant subject matter - much better than the larger events like SPI in my opinion.

- Sempra Renewables

This event was a great way to hear from industry leaders on techniques and best practices regarding PV O&M. This space was perfect to share successes and lessons learned
