Greenpenny a Gigawatt Sponsor of MnSEIA’s Gateway to Solar Conference


Minneapolis - Greenpenny will be a gigawatt sponsor at the Minnesota Solar Energy Industries Association (MnSEIA) Gateway to Solar Conference. The event will be held next week on October 18th and 19th in Minneapolis, Minnesota and will highlight the long-term investments in people, technologies, and policies that will advance the renewable energy transformation.  Conference attendees include solar installers and developers, utilities, non-profits, government agencies and law-makers from Minnesota and across the country.


Greenpenny will serve on panel discussion next Monday

“The panel conversation, ‘Capital & Financing Options for Solar Energy Investments’ will be a forum to discuss professional services available to support those investing in solar energy and the economic benefits renewable energy can provide,” said MacDuff. “Solar energy adoption requires access to cost effective capital and financing for project installations in an economically viable way for everyone involved. At greenpenny, we’re working to do our part by financing solar energy and storage systems to power homes, businesses small and large, non-profits, and farms in the Midwest.” 

Other programming will include state and federal policy reviews, technical sessions, NABCEP installer continuing education, and a Minnesota legislature interactive discussion. Attendees can learn more and register at
