  Utilities are grappling with the most cost-effective ways to increase their renewable energy                      EUCI has
  portfolios. Solar photovoltaic (PV) technology provides an attractive method in many areas
  within North America to help increase the percentage of carbon-free energy production.                            as an

  quantities to provide a viable energy source. However, solar PV installations are still more     by the International

  After registration, each registrant will receive a confirmation of payment or an invoice, depending on method of payment. Each
  registrant will also receive an e-mail with appropriate login information and more information regarding the event 24 hours prior
  to the start of the event. To log on, you will need a Windows PC with a broadband connection and audio system.
  what iS a SiNgle Site coNNectioN?
  A site connection allows a single connection to the web conference. That connection is open to any number of users in a
  collaborative setting. because there are no travel expenses and only a single registration fee is required, each additional
  participant lowers the cost per participant significantly.
  by purchasing a site connection, you can invite as many people as you would like to view and participate in the session
  from a single location. Set up the session in a conference room and project the presentation and chat on a large screen.
  You also have rights to distribute copies of the presentation materials to everyone involved. Please note that audio is
  received via the computer sound system and must be broadcast to your group.
  If for any reason a relevant stakeholder cannot co-locate for the session, we encourage you to include that person by
  purchasing an additional connection at the reduced fee of $195 per session. This will ensure that every member of a team
  receives the same relevant, timely information in the most efficient way.
