After seven years of continued growth in the Small Wind industry, the eighth annual Small Wind Installers Conference is scheduled to take place June 12 – 13, 2012 in Stevens Point, Wisconsin. The Small Wind Installers Conference is the premier event for small wind-electric system installers, site assessors, designers, consultants, manufacturers, supply chain vendors, educators and advocates, and for those involved in sales, specification, management, grants and funding, and the permitting of small wind systems. The Conference is organized by Small Wind Conference Coordinating Committee.

Nearly 300 small wind professionals and industry representatives from across the United States and nine countries attended the 2011 conference. While American manufacturers have led the global Small Wind industry, the Conference has been a focal point for manufacturers, distributors and installers from Europe, Asia and Central and South America. The Conference, held just days before the Midwest Renewable Energy Fair in Custer, Wisconsin, is a forum for cutting edge information on new trends in the industry, emerging technologies and testing, issues in zoning and permitting, workforce development and training, site assessment and funding mechanisms. 2011 saw significant developments in opportunities for small wind installers and manufacturers. Hear first-hand reports from vanguard leaders in the field.

The Small Wind Installer Conference is also the site for an extensive Exhibitor Hall featuring turbine, tower, wind resource assessment, and wind advocate services and products. Sponsorship opportunities are available. The Small Wind Installers Conference will be held at the Stevens Point Holiday Inn and Conference Center, 1001 Amber Avenue, Stevens Point, Wisconsin.
