Everything is weird
Weird. That’s the only way I can describe life right now. Everything is weird. It’s weird that I’m working permanently from home. It’s weird that we’re not traveling to Las Vegas or California this year for a tradeshow. It’s weird that most of our interactions are happening through a tiny screen. It’s weird that business — and life — must still go on.
We’re sticking to a normal schedule here at Solar Power World. We’re still covering the latest news every day on solarpowerworldonline.com, and you’ll see the same great product features in this issue as before. With it being September, our issue is usually heavily focused on Solar Power International. Although the in-person event has been canceled due to continued COVID-19 concerns, we’re still dedicated to bringing you news on product releases and trending conversations held at the virtual event over the next two months.
We’re not shying away from the weirdness. Life is still going on out there, and there are many important solar developments happening right now. Besides tradeshows, product releases and educational opportunities moving online, there’s also a pretty big national election coming up. In this issue, we look at how the presidential candidates view the solar industry and economic policies. Oh, and it’s hurricane season, so let’s make sure your mounting systems are able to adequately handle increased wind speeds — especially since there was a “rare inland hurricane” that hit Iowa in August. All the more reason for everyone to take climate change platforms into consideration when placing your vote this November.
Thanks for sticking with us through this weird time. See you soon on the other side.
