Greenpenny Sponsors 8th Annual Midwest Solar Expo

DECORAH, Iowa – June 17, 2022 – Greenpenny is sponsoring the 8th annual Midwest Solar Expo, which will take place in person June 20-22 in Minneapolis. Aiming to strengthen regional solar and clean energy markets, the conference attracts over 450 industry leaders from across the country looking to expand or enter the Midwest market. The event offers attendees premium education with deep market insights, hands-on training, exhibition, networking receptions, a dedicated B2B networking area and much more.

“The Midwest Solar Expo brings together a range of thought leaders from top solar developers and installers to manufacturers and distributors to government officials and trade associations,” says Jason MacDuff, greenpenny President. “Our team is looking forward to the exchange of knowledge and ideas from others involved in the green energy transformation.”

MacDuff is also serving as a panelist for a discussion titled “Midwest Capital Markets in 2022”. The discussion will explore the Midwestern solar landscape and what it takes to get a project financed in today’s environment with varying regulation and constantly shifting incentives, among other uncertainties. Additional discussions from a variety of industry players are on the agenda.

“We are excited to be able to hold an in-person event again.  We must continue to cultivate the industry’s vibrant growth, relationships, expertise, and talent as much as possible, even during challenging times. Our topics this year cover the most up-to-date and evolving nature of the industry.” said Jake Rozmaryn, Executive Director, and Co-Founder of the Midwest Solar Expo.
