SEPA offers scholarships for utilities to attend annual conference

Utility professionals who need to brush up on the solar industry, but just don’t have the travel budget, may be eligible for a scholarship to Solar Power International Redirecting to a non-government site (SPI), Sept. 10 to13 in Orlando, Fla.    

The Solar Electric Power Association Redirecting to a non-government site (SEPA) is offering a limited number of scholarships Redirecting to a non-government site for utility employees to attend this business-to-business solar conference and trade show. This event brings together the solar industry to build and advance important business relationships, stay current on industry developments and find new solutions.

Conference registration will include attendance at all conference sessions and idea swaps, as well as Tuesday’s block party at Hard Rock Live and Café. In addition, join utility peers as they discuss solar successes and challenges at SEPA’s exclusive utility events, which include a breakfast with the regional directors and a utility-only networking reception.

Scholarship recipients will receive a complimentary full conference registration, valued up to $1,095, plus a stipend of up to $1,000 for coach airfare and hotel accommodations. SEPA intends the scholarships to encourage attendance of utility executives who would not otherwise be able to attend SPI due to budgetary and/or travel restrictions. No other obligations apply.

Completed applications must be submitted by June 15, 2012. Contact Jessica Sliva with questions about the scholarship program.
