Infocast's Distributed Solar East Finance & Investment Summit 2011

Huge Increases in Solar Panels Sweeping the East Coast Are Fueling Massive Growth for Distributed Solar Projects and Could Revolutionize the Power Grid

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - May 10, 2011) - Infocast brings its highly acclaimed Distributed Solar Series to the East Coast in the form of the DistributedSolar East Finance & Investment Summit 2011 on June 8-10, 2011 at the Hilton Newark Penn Station Hotel in Newark, NJ. This Summit corresponds with a massive acceleration of distributed solar projects up and down the Eastern Seaboard, boosting the growth of these markets and unleashing a wave of new opportunities across the country.

The Solar Market is experiencing rapid growth in its share of the energy sector. The U.S. Solar market grew 67% in 2010, according to the annual Solar Electric Industries Association (SEIA) Report. Former SEIA President Scott Sklar stated that the industry went from "50,000 roof s to 100,000 roofs in just one year." He also stated that the solar industry could meet "20% of the U.S.'s electricity demands with just rooftops," highlighting the importance of the solar industry to the overall power grid.

The Distributed Solar East Summit will address the strategies to fund the development of the Distributed Solar industry by bringing together the front-line players who are active in the distributed solar energy market -- project developers, investors, lenders, utilities, contractors and installers. Green energy industry leaders such as Tioga Energy, Nautilus Solar Energy and Petra Solar have contributed to the new wave of deals sweeping the East Coast that will ultimately support several environmental measures -- reducing greenhouse gases, increasing economic stability and ensuring affordable energy for its users.

The diverse roster of speakers from companies including Solar City, PSE&G, Nautilus Solar Energy, US Bank, JP Morgan Capital, Duke Energy, Tioga Energy, Chevron Energy Solutions, and Cleantech Law Partners will be participating among many others.
