Arizona Solar Training Conference Educates Dealers on Industry Leading Solar Technologies and Installation Practices

PHOENIX, AZ--(Marketwire - February 5, 2009) - AEE Solar, a leading distributor of solar energy products, announced today that it will be holding its 2nd Annual Solar Dealer Conference in Mesa, Arizona on Feb. 18-22, 2009 at the Hilton Phoenix East Hotel. The conference will educate new and existing dealers from around the world on the latest solar photovoltaic (PV) products, technologies, installation techniques, code compliance, and financial analysis tools.

"If you think you have what it takes to launch a new solar business in this rapidly growing yet highly competitive renewable energy marketplace, AEE Solar is well positioned to provide the products, training, business skills, and financial planning tools needed to compete in today's growing solar economy," said Jeff Spies, AEE Solar Training Manager. "Our conference will help new dealers plan a solar business, receive technical training and utilize marketing programs necessary to succeed in the competitive solar marketplace. An expanded federal tax credit and numerous renewable energy incentive programs have created long waiting lines for residential and commercial solar installations."

The conference meets the growing demand of individuals and companies that are moving from the construction, roofing, electrical, and HVAC industries to the renewable energy industry and need a source of professional solar training programs to prepare them for what it takes to build a clean, green power infrastructure throughout the United States and beyond.

The solar training workshops are taught in a classroom environment during the 4-day conference. Contractors that complete the advised training and certification process will be ready to become solar dealers, installers, and/or resellers. They can then sell a wide range of renewable energy products from AEE Solar's large inventory. AEE's expansive 200-page catalog (considered the biggest and best in the industry) showcases the largest selection of modules, racking, inverters, and off-grid products available. Even better, this catalog is available to authorized dealers for private labeling -- further enhancing dealer credibility in the eyes of the end customer.

The requirements to attend the event include possessing a valid Electrical, HVAC, Roofing, or General Contractor's license, filling out the AEE Solar Dealer Application form, and paying the $295 registration fee. The $295 fee covers expo pass, all classroom trainings, and meals for the entire event. More details are available at:
