SOLAR 2004’s theme is A Solar Harvest – Growing Opportunities. This theme is perfect for the bountiful state of Oregon. Oregon offers over a century of experience with hydropower and geothermal, and decades of buildings featuring daylighting, passive solar heating, and passive cooling. Currently, Oregon’s windpower generation is expanding, with solar thermal, photovoltaics, and biomass in close pursuit.
The city of Portland’s commitment to sustainability is internationally recognized. On Earth Day 2002, Oregon became the first state in the nation whose capitol building generates electricity from the sun, with a PV array provided by Portland General Electric’s Clean WindTM program. The National Renewable Energy Laboratory ranked Oregon as the 12th most cost effective location in the nation to install solar electric power, thanks to a combination of sunny summer days and robust consumer interest many years in the making. Our electricity customers love green power!
Come join SOLAR 2004 in Portland! You’ll find a solar bounty, entertainment, knowledge, great food, a vibrant and sustainable city, and the gorgeous Pacific Northwest landscape in dry, sunny, July.
