What is Empower 2021?

Empower 2021 is a virtual summit brought to you by Aurora Solar. This two-day event will bring together solar industry leaders, professionals, policy insiders, and growth experts to share their knowledge, expertise, and insights. 


This year’s theme is Moving Solar Forward. Sessions will highlight the unique challenges and opportunities as we (gently) move into the post-COVID world. All told, the summit features more than six sessions covering topics from leveling-up your operations and sales as remote and hybrid selling continues to be the norm, expanding your business with new solar products, and understanding customer decision-making. We’ll also go deep into NEM and try to make sense of the changes facing many states, and get an outlook for 2021 and beyond from a panel of industry leaders.


Here's a quick video from last year:
