Principal Solar Institute Online Conferences – Webinar Proposal Form

The Principal Solar Institute ( is a
community for solar installation professionals and developers who make
system component design recommendations and purchasing decisions in the
commercial and utility markets (more than 25 kW total size).

. Members must have selected or sourced more than $100,000 of solar
system components within the past 12 months

We organize and host monthly, 30-minute hosted webinars. We currently
offer two series:

. “Straight Talk” – a single vendor presents their product, what is new,
and where they are the best. This is not a typical sales pitch, as
the presenter must be a technical expert who can support all claims
with data and be able to explain the source of the data in detail to
an audience of skeptical experts.
. “Around the Corner” – these webinars discuss topics that will affect
commercial projects within a year, for example, government
regulations, utility and permitting issues, finance and legal changes,
and market trends.
