The Event:

The Gateway to Solar Conference, hosted by the Minnesota Solar Energy Industries Association (MnSEIA), is the Midwest's biggest and best solar and storage conference. Each year solar installers and developers, manufacturers, distributors, financiers, engineers, utilities, job trainers, trade unions, non-profits, government agencies, and more gather for quality networking, education, and fun off-site events.

Thank you for an incredible 2022 conference! We had our biggest event ever with nearly 500 attendees representing 218 companies. Mark your calendars for next year: October 9-10, 2023 at the InterContinental MSP/St. Paul Airport Hotel and check out this year's photo gallery!

Proceeds from the Gateway Conference support MnSEIA’s year-round regulatory and policy work to protect and promote the growth of Minnesota solar + storage.

This event is a ‘small’ event but feels like a great opportunity to network and get in touch with the Minnesota industry folks. So happy to attend this every year!
Great to connect with potential clients, customers, and other stakeholders.
The solar industry in Minnesota is not going away anytime....period. I'm excited for the future of solar and it was reflected by all who participated in this conference.
