Infocast's 4th Annual Utility Scale Solar Summit 2011 Returns

The Colossal Growth in the Utility Scale Solar Market Is Providing Investors With a Massive Opportunity to Expand the Existing Industry Infrastructure

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - Aug 9, 2011) - Infocast's 4th Annual Utility Scale Solar Summit will take place from September 13-15, 2011 at the Rancho Bernardo Inn in San Diego, CA and the timing can't be better! The utility solar electric markets are on fire and continue to expand quickly nationwide, with the top utilities driving the bulk of the growth. With this backdrop of rapid expansion, the Summit's timing is impeccable and provides an exceptional networking opportunity for industry players and the financial community to capitalize on new opportunities in this booming market.

The utility solar electric markets had a strong 2010 and are poised to have an even better 2011, according to a recently released ranking report from the Solar Electric Power Association (SEPA). The top ranked utilities integrated 561MW of solar electric capacity in 2010, representing 100% growth over the previous year. Many utility companies that are ranked in SEPA's Top Ten Annual rankings, including PG&E, Xcel Energy and Arizona Public Service, will be keynote speakers at Infocast's Utility Scale Solar Summit. Their leading perspectives, along with a superb roster of cutting-edge technical presentation will provide a unique forum for ongoing developers and fledging innovators to present their latest insights to the utility scale solar community.

Utility Scale Solar Summit has sold out the past two years and this year is shaping to be even bigger with over 50 prominent speakers from companies including Duke Energy Renewables, GTM Research, Luce, Forward, Hamilton & Scripps, Axio Power, Main Street Power Company, Inc., First Solar and 8MinuteEnergy. The Summit will provides attendees with a rare opportunity to connect with leading project developers, utilities, investors, lenders and other industry players to finance utility scale solar projects.
