Aurora Solar, a cloud-based platform creating a future of solar for all by powering industry professionals to make solar simple and predictable, has announced its online event Empower on November 1-2, 2022, where the solar community shapes the future together. Empower is a free event where attendees can earn up to four NABCEP CEU credits. Empower is for the entire solar community: design, operations and engineering; sales and marketing; senior management; solar installers and people curious to learn more about the rapidly growing solar industry.
“As the Inflation Reduction Act makes solar more accessible, our industry needs to prepare for the next wave of welcomed demand — SEIA estimates $600 billion in new solar investment over the next decade,” said Chris Hopper, co-founder and CEO, Aurora Solar. “At Empower, we’ll get inspired for what lies ahead with keynotes from Ari Matusiak and Bill Parsons. We’ll also learn how we can continue to drive growth, understand the evolving solar value chain, and prepare for the digital transformation of our industry.”
Aurora also announced the event’s keynote speaker will be actor and environmentalist Edward Norton.
“Edward has a long history with the solar industry and as a conservationist,” said Chris Hopper, co-founder and CEO of Aurora Solar. “His passion for and views on solar closely align with our mission to create a future of solar for all. We’re thrilled to add Edward to Empower’s roster of world-class speakers who are collectively advancing the solar industry and creating a more sustainable, resilient future.”
During his keynote titled “The Importance of Solar for All,” Norton will share his views on the role of solar in creating resiliency and social equality. He will also discuss the importance of distributed energy and how it has come to life through the MWCT’s Chyulu Carbon Project, which he has been supporting for the past 20+ years. One of the organization’s newest projects focuses on building energy storage and solar infrastructure to power electric vehicles in remote parts of Kenya to help protect wildlife. In support of this cause, Aurora Solar will donate $5 to this initiative for every person who registers for Empower 2022, up to $25,000, and will match donations, up to an additional $25,000, made to this cause through the Aurora/MWCT GoFundMe page — donate here.
