As popular demand for SMA Regional Forum events continues, additional dates have been announced through 2012. SMA's Sunny PRO Club—a membership-based professional partnership program for solar installers—will host six Regional Forums during the latter half of 2012.
The remaining events—free with pre-registration—are planned for select U.S. cities, with the next forum taking place June 26, 2012, in Phoenix, Ariz. Forums took place in cities across the U.S. and Canada during the first half of the year.
Installers and electrical trade professionals benefit from the Regional Forum’s slate of technical training, hands-on product workshops and informative presentations provided by the SMA Solar Academy. Topics include micro-string hybrid photovoltaic (PV) systems, monitoring tools and solutions, off-grid battery backup overview and small commercial applications.
“We’ve seen great turnout at the Regional Forums this year and are pleased to extend the schedule through the end of 2012,” said Ciara Wakefield, Sunny PRO Club manager for SMA America. “Regional Forums allow SMA to personally demonstrate its commitment to installers through free technical training and exclusive networking opportunities.”
