Co-hosted by Solar Power World and the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA), contractors from across the country packed the Juniper Ballroom at the Aria Resort & Casino to celebrate the excellence and explosive growth of the solar industry and the role they play in it.

Everybody Solar: Everybody Solar works to protect the environment and strengthen U.S. communities through solar energy projects. By providing solar power to local charities we help them reduce electricity costs and direct their limited resources to the communities they serve.
Rhone Resch, president and CEO of SEIA, explained the importance of the event in showing the rest of the country what the united strength of the industry looks like.
“If we band together, I believe that we can continue this tremendous growth,” Resch says. “You, the top contractors in solar today, will enjoy many more years of success and leadership across the country.”
