May 9-11, 2017 | Edmonton, Alberta, Canada


Due to rapidly declining technology costs in recent years and a renewed focused on public policy to tackle greenhouse gas emissions, the role and potential of solar energy in Western Canada is rapidly moving from the periphery toward the mainstream. Leadership, regulation and investment at the federal, provincial and territorial levels are rapidly transforming the outlook for this part of our energy resource sector.

The Canadian Solar Industries Association (CanSIA)’s annual western region conference, Solar West 2017, will take place at the Westin Edmonton from May 9th to the 11th.

Solar West 2017 will explore the key topics of interest to industry, policy-makers, regulators and utilities during this period of change.

Be part of the change, join us at Solar West!
