CALSEIA is teaming up with Intersolar and SEMI to host California’s biggest-ever solar industry networking event, Summerfest 2017, at AT&T Park, home of San Francisco’s major league baseball team.
Summerfest is the official networking party of Intersolar and ees North America, and SEMICON West, the largest solar, energy storage and advanced electronics exhibitions in North America. The party, to be held on Tuesday, July 11, will celebrate CALSEIA’s 40th Anniversary and Intersolar’s 10th Anniversary and is expected to attract over 2,500 participants.
“There’s nothing more all-American than solar energy and baseball,” said CALSEIA Executive Director Bernadette Del Chiaro. “It is going to be a very special night as we celebrate decades of championing solar energy together.”
Summerfest is CALSEIA’s biggest fundraising event of the year. As CALSEIA’s largest donor and long-time supporter, Intersolar’s funding partnership helps CALSEIA to promote smart solar technologies, drive policy advocacy and create a strong voice for solar and energy storage markets in California and nationwide.
“Intersolar is proud to be a major supporter of CALSEIA’s efforts to improve all facets of the markets it serves,” said Solar Promotion International’s Managing Director Florian Wessendorf. “We think this premier solar networking and fundraising event will be a blast for everyone,” added Daniel Strowitzki, CEO of FMMI International.
As an extra special feature, event attendees will be able to watch a live broadcast of the MLB All-Star Game, displayed on the AT&T Park jumbotron scoreboard and screens throughout the venue. Attendees can also enjoy food, beverages, dancing, stadium tours, and even batting practice in the underground batting cages.
“It is an honor for SEMI to be a part of this exciting event that will bring together hundreds of solar and electronics enthusiasts for an unforgettable evening of fun and celebration,” said David Anderson, president of SEMI Americas. “SEMI looks forward to collaborating with Intersolar and CALSEIA and providing an excellent networking opportunity for our customers.”
All proceeds support CALSEIA’s ongoing work to promote smart solar in California.

Our longer running side project is The Pitch -- in which we have awkward discussions with solar manufacturers and suppliers about their new technology and ideas so that you don't have to. We've discusses everything from residential rail-less deck attaching and home solar financing to large-scale energy storage value stacking and utility-driven new home solar + storage microgrids.
