On Saturday, November 12, VA SUN hosted its first ever Virginia Solar Congress. Seventy solar advocates from across Virginia came together to discuss the status of solar in our state. The Solar Congress was an open, collaborative, and a great opportunity to connect with fellow solar enthusiasts from across Virginia.
Solar Congress attendees participated in informational presentations on a wide range of solar topics. After light lunch refreshments, the afternoon was dedicated to an informal, participatory forum discussion about the development of Virginia’s solar landscape. If you weren’t able to make the Congress, but want to stay active in Virginia solar, be sure to sign the Virginia Declaration of Solar Rights to let your legislators know you support solar.
