Year after year, the solar energy industry continues to blaze a trail of record breaking growth in the United States. In 2016, the industry grew by 97%, was the number one source of new electric capacity for the first time, and accounted for 1 out of every 50 new jobs created throughout the year. It is undeniably becoming a major force within the energy sector as well as within the political landscape, with a majority of Americans in favor of expanding its use.
With so much attention going to what solar has recently done, at this month's GreenHomeNYC Forum, we want to take a look at what the solar industry will be doing next, with a specific focus on trends in technology. From solar shingles and tiles to energy storage to microgrids to solar canopies and more, there is a lot happening and we will have several experts speaking about their involvement in some of the up and coming technologies and processes in the solar energy marketplace happening right in our own backyard.
Join us this month to hear about the next stage of solar!
