But don't worry. I'll soon resurface. I'm heading down to Orlando this afternoon to meet up with 20,000 or so of my closest friends at Solar Power International. The convention kicks off this evening and runs through Thursday, Sept. 13.
I have all sorts of great interviews set up with execs from companies including Trina Solar, LG, SunPower, BASF, Standard Solar, CertainTeed, One Roof Energy, Schneider Electric, Sharp, Mage Solar, Ecolibrium Solar and many more. I'll be doing video interviews as well as writing plenty of articles. And taking lots of photos.
So stay tuned for all things solar. And be sure and watch my videos and see if you can spot the moment in the convention where my energy shoots sky high as I find a super-cool solar breakthrough! I'm looking forward to that moment, too.
For now, I'm Orlando-bound. More news later directly from the Sunshine State.
