Local, Florida-based solar company US Solar, will be presenting at the South Florida Association of Environmental Professionals (SFAEP) June Luncheon. The luncheon will take place Thursday, June 18, and will focus on the financial and environmental benefits of commercial scale solar for Florida businesses. The luncheon will also provide a forum for attending professionals to discuss solar policy issues that the Sunshine State is currently facing.
The topic of solar has been generating a lot of buzz nationally, and Florida is being referred to as “ground zero” by many. Between climate change debates, utility rebates, net metering, tax credits, and a large ballot initiative focused on the November 2016 election, there are many relevant solar topics that business owners and professionals need to be informed about. US Solar’s advanced solar training college US Solar Institute (USSI) has historically been a source of information on topics such as these, and continues to serve as a knowledge resource moving forward.
“The topic of solar is no longer an unaffordable dream or fleeting thought for many business professionals in Florida.” Said Ray Johnson of US Solar and Florida Solar One. “Going solar is a financial decision as well as an environmental decision, and the logic is sound in both areas. It is more important than ever for business owners and professionals to educate themselves about solar and what it can mean for them.”
The session that US Solar will be presenting is titled “Ending the Solar Eclipse in the Sunshine State”. The luncheon will be held in the Florida Department of Transportation Auditorium in Fort Lauderdale from 11:45am to 1pm. The event is free for SFAEP members and is a “bring your own lunch” format. Those who are interested in attending or getting involved with South Florida Association of Environmental Professionals can contact SFAEP President Stephanie Voris, PWS, and firstname.lastname@example.org.
