This year, longtime Intersolar North America partner California Solar Energy Industries Association (CALSEIA) will mark 40 years of service to the Californian solar community. In collaboration with SEMICON West and ees North America, Intersolar and CALSEIA will host California’s biggest-ever solar industry networking event, Solar Summerfest 2017, at AT&T Park, home of San Francisco’s major league baseball team. All proceeds from Solar Summerfest will help CALSEIA realize its goal of expanding the use of all solar and energy storage technologies in California, and establish a sustainable industry for a clean energy future. As CALSEIA’s largest donor, the Intersolar fundraising partnership has generated more than $1 million for the organization since 2012. In 2016 alone, proceeds from Solar Summerfest resulted in a donation by Intersolar of more than $350,000 to CALSEIA to further promote solar and energy storage use.
On Tuesday, 11 July the event will be open from 5 P.M. to 10 P.M. at AT&T Park for an estimated 2,000 solar and energy storage professionals. Attendees will be able to watch the MLB All-Star Game live on the jumbotron, and explore the stadium on company-sponsored tours of AT&T Park. There will be special use of the batting cages, custom photo booth baseball trading cards, hosted food and drink stations, and much more. Additional information, including event details and registration, is available online.
