The most complete event on Solar Operations & Maintenance and Asset Management in North America

Following the huge success of Solar O&M Europe, we'll host the conference & exhibition Solar O&M North America on 25 and 26 March in San Francisco.
The Solar O&M Europe conference & exhibition will also be returning to Milan in 2014, so block the 7th & 8th of October in your agenda!
