Company to Host Training Events for Solar Professionals throughout the US and Canada.

ROCKLIN, Calif., January 10, 2013—Due to ongoing popularity and strong attendance over the past two years SMA will once again host a full roster of events in 2013 as part of its highly successful SMA Regional Forum program. The forums are hosted by SMA’s Sunny PRO Club—a membership-based professional partnership program for solar installers—and attendance is free for industry professionals. The series will kick off this month in Seattle, Wash.

Regional forums are one-day events that provide high-level training and product information and allow solar professionals to network with one another. Installers and electrical trade professionals benefit from the regional forums’ slate of technical training, product workshops and informative presentations led by the SMA Solar Academy.

“Attending a Sunny PRO Club Regional Forum allows industry professionals to gain insight into SMA’s latest technology as well as new ways to generate business,” said Ciara Wakefield, Sunny PRO Club manager for SMA America. “Attendees have also expressed great satisfaction with the networking opportunities offered at the forums.”

Each regional forum offers a full day of training sessions. The complete 2013 schedule includes the following:

           Residential PV solutions
           Decentralized commercial solutions
           Transformerless inverter technology
           Energy security with battery backup
           Communications and monitoring
           Sunny Design Web
           Sales tools and support
           SMA Service

“Before attending a regional forum in Denver last year, we at Nixon Solar were not aware of the support SMA offered to solar professionals in this very technical and demanding industry,” said Mark Brennan of Nixon Solar. “The Sunny PRO Club encourages members to participate in win-win opportunities. In our case, meeting with SMA professionals under the most gracious and hospitable of environments empowered us to reach our project goals, which we believe will bring profound opportunities to this ever-changing market.”

Each regional forum ends with a presentation from the Sunny PRO Club team. During the presentation attendees can learn more about how the Sunny PRO Club’s exclusive technical benefits, access to SMA Service personnel and customized marketing support can increase sales and improve operations.
