Solar Canada 2011 is the largest and most influential conference and trade show for the solar industry in Canada. The number of exhibitors at this annual solar marketplace increased from 40, in 2007, to 198 in 2010. And attendance jumped from 400 visitors, in 2007, to more than 4,000 last year.
CanSIA, Canada's solar advocate, is working to support the solar industry's bid to have solar energy widely deployed throughout Canada as a recognized and established component of Canada's energy mix, enabled by a solar industry that competes on a global playing field. By 2015, the solar industry is expected to support more than 35,000 jobs in the economy and displace 15 to 31 million tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions per year, providing a safer, cleaner environment for generations to come.
