Registration for MnSEIA's Gateway to Solar Conference is now open!
MnSEIA is excited to announce the 7th annual MnSEIA Gateway to Solar Conference, taking place virtually October 12-13, 2020.
The Gateway Conference is a two-day working event that brings together solar practitioners from across the country for education, networking, and fun off-site events. Every year, installers, financiers, engineers, developers, distributors, manufacturers, non-profits, job trainers, trade unions, utilities, and government agencies gather to connect, make business deals, and learn about the future of Minnesota solar.
The Conference is known for its in-depth educational events including past speakers from the PUC, Minnesota legislators, Mayors, and staff from the Governor’s Office, and leaders across the solar industry, and for providing quality networking opportunities in a relaxed forum.
Even though the Gateway Conference will be virtual this year because of COVID-19 concerns, we will still have 2 days of high-quality educational sessions with speakers from around the country, fun networking events, and are planning to also offer NABCEP credit opportunities, solar farm tours, and more.
Proceeds from the Gateway Conference support MnSEIA’s regulatory and policy efforts that enhance the growth of solar across the state. From now until July 6th, use EARLYBIRD2020 to get $20 off your attendee registration!

MnSEIA has been carefully monitoring the COVID-19 situation and what the CDC recommends for large group gatherings. Due to the possibility of a second wave this fall, we have determined it’s best for the health of our attendees, speakers, sponsors, and communities to move to an online event. We are confident we can still provide the same high-quality level of educational content with two days of speakers, panels, and presentations, as well as virtual networking opportunities.
We will also ensure sponsors still receive exposure to clients and customers with new and creative benefits. We have prepared a virtual Gateway to Solar sponsorship packet so you can what your sponsorship will look like in an online event. We think the benefits you will receive with a virtual event would still give your company exposure to clients and customers, just in a different way.
