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.

Our 9th annual conference will be October 17-18th, 2022 at the Hyatt Regency in Minneapolis. 2021 was our biggest year yet - with over 415 attendees - and we're expecting an even larger event this year. With top-tier education and networking opportunities, this is one event you won't want to miss in 2022!

Proceeds from the Gateway to Solar Conference supports MnSEIA’s year-round regulatory and policy work to protect and promote the growth of the solar and energy storage industries in Minnesota.
