WASHINGTON, DC, Feb 22, 2012 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) –
The Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) and the Solar
Electric Power Association (SEPA) today announced they are bringing
the highly successful PV America conference and exposition to both
coasts in 2013, with events in Philadelphia and San Diego. PV America
East takes place January 29-31 at the Philadelphia Convention Center
and PV America West takes place May 14-16 at the San Diego Convention
Center.

The PV America shows are the premiere photovoltaic (PV) technology
events for the United States that showcase growing solar energy
regional markets.

“The expansion of PV America to two regional events affirms that the
photovoltaic industry is surging on both coasts of the United States.
We are excited to be returning to Philadelphia to promote the
continued growth in the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast regions,” said
Rhone Resch, president and CEO of SEIA. “Demand for solar energy
continues to soar and we expect more than three gigawatts of new PV
across the U.S. in 2013, enough solar to power more than half a
million homes. PV America East brings the industry together to do
business, share knowledge and generate new ideas.”

“PV America West is an important event for anyone doing business in
this region: utilities, installers, and policy makers,” said Julia
Hamm, president and CEO of SEPA. “The Western region leads the nation
in solar technology innovation with the continued increase of
grid-connected PV installations, and California has a substantial 44
percent share. The Southern California region continues to thrive and
by bringing PV America West to San Diego acknowledges how important
the solar industry is to this area of the country.”

The two events offer a thorough look into the PV industry on regional
and local levels, encompassing residential and commercial PV products
and technology, financing, and policy. In addition to exhibits, a
timely and comprehensive conference program provides attendees with
the knowledge and tools needed to succeed in the PV industry.

Exhibit floor space for the 2013 shows will be sold during PV America
2012 taking place March 19-21 in San Jose, Calif, as well as online
after the event.
