Earlier this fall, the sales team here at Sunstore Solar joined hundreds of others in the renewable energy industry at the South Carolina Clean Energy Summit, held in Columbia. The annual summit is sponsored by the South Carolina Clean Energy Business Alliance (SCEBBA) and gives attendees a chance to gauge the temperature of the renewable energy market here in our home state, which has been regarded as one of the best states in the country for solar panel installation.
Sunstore Solar has been involved with renewable energy in South Carolina for over 40 years, so when these big summits happen, our staff is eager to be there to hear the latest news. This year was no different and when we showed up at 8:30am for coffee, the lobby of the Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center was buzzing with distributors, vendors and utility officials catching up with each other. The energy carried through all day with updates from the electric utility providers as well as panel discussions on expanding battery technology and innovative transportation programs.
The conference was highlighted by an informative speech from keynote speaker Hugh Bromley of Bloomberg Energy Finance, who took the discussion global and really put our industry's impact on global energy production into perspective. Bromley also had a good segment of discussion on the proposed tariff on imported solar panels and discussed how that could impact our industry and our state’s reputation as being one of the most solar-friendly in the country.
The day wrapped with awards and group sessions and before we knew it, we were saying our goodbyes.
Some would see these types of events as a complete waste of time, but not Sunstore. We rooted ourselves in our state and helped to develop organizations like the South Carolina Solar Council over a decade ago. These are the types of events and organizations that bring us closer to our market, our customers and our technology. These events give us knowledge that we can then share with our clients to help them make the best decision for them. The weather was hot and the traffic was bad, but it was all worth it and we will be back to Columbia again in 2018!
