    Solar Power Midwest is coming back to the Windy City! We are excited to bring a leading education and exhibition program to the Midwest. From rustbelt to greenbelt, solar energy is a force moving forward, and the Midwest is no exception.

    Commitment to Collaboration

    The success of this event, and all Solar Power Events, is heavily driven by the two non-profit, membership organizations behind it. The partnership between SEPA and SEIA, through their joint ownership of the Solar Power Events, has resulted in the creation of a robust suite of business and education opportunities for the solar industry. Solar Power Events organizers and speakers will strive to create a welcoming, collaborative environment for all attendees and stakeholders. At times, debatable issues are discussed at Solar Power Events. These debates make the industry stronger and facilitate the healthy exchange of ideas in a collegial setting. All Solar Power Events speakers will strive to present balanced perspectives on contentious issues in a professional, constructive manner. Over 18,000 architects, developers, engineers, and solar and storage installers are going to meet at the McCormick Place in Chicago. The preliminary schedule has been posted, which includes access to the Greenbuild opening plenary, alongside the Solar Power Midwest general session, workshops and networking events.
