Greenpenny a Presenting Sponsor of 2021 RENEWABLE ENERGY SUMMIT

January 7, 2021

Decorah, Iowa and Madison, Wisconsin – Greenpenny will be a presenting sponsor at RENEW Wisconsin’s 10th Annual Renewable Energy Summit. The Conference will be hosted virtually next week from Tuesday, January 12th through Thursday, January 14th. “Building the Clean Energy Mosaic,” will highlight the diversity of technologies, people, and scale needed to shape our clean energy future.

The Summit will bring together renewable energy industry professionals, policymakers, utility leaders, government officials, students, and advocates to celebrate 2020 accomplishments and discuss the pieces and players needed to continue advancing renewable energy.

More than 50 expert speakers will discuss Wisconsin’s renewable energy success and opportunities, and how diversity and collaboration can accelerate the transition to 100 percent clean energy.

Greenpenny V.P. Jason MacDuff will kick-off Wednesday's programming.

"The Summit is a great place to exchange ideas, learn from others and share how greenpenny is willing to do our part to create a more sustainable tomorrow,” said MacDuff. “In addition to financing solar systems to power homes, businesses, non-profits and farms in the Midwest, Greenpenny wants to be a catalyst for positive change by helping people use their money as their voice for fiscal and environmental advocacy.”

Other programming will include panels, breakouts, 101 sessions, and engaging Industry Conversations. Attendees can register for one day, all three, or opt to only attend the lunchtime 101 Sessions. Learn more and register at
