RRC to Receive Spotlight at SPI 2016


RRC’s innovative ideas on how to Optimize Solar Foundations have been selected for the Solar Power International (SPI) 2016 Education Poster Hall! The poster will detail how “right sizing” your driven pile foundations is the key to achieving the lowest overall project cost while maintaining compliance with applicable building codes and safety factors. SPI will host a reception on September 13th featuring a range of posters covering many diverse topics, including RRC’s contribution to the solar conversation.

RRC joins Women in Solar Energy at #NationWISE Event

The RRC Oregon team proudly attended the first #NationWISE (Women in Solar Energy) roundtable event in Portland, Oregon on Tuesday, February 23. The Portland roundtable event was hosted by Energy Trust of Oregon. Margie Harris, executive director of Energy Trust of Oregon, led the discussion and shared her experience as a woman working in the Oregon energy industry and her thoughts on building an organization that values diversity.


Through #NationWISE roundtable events in 15 U.S. cities, WISE seeks to help women enter and grow in their local solar market. #NationWISE events give industry professionals—both men and women—opportunities to brainstorm policies and programs that promote women and diversity.

WISE is the solar industry’s only non-profit membership organization singularly focused on the recruitment, advancement, and retention of women in the solar energy industry. WISE accomplishes this through core programs focused on workforce development, mentorship, networking events and SheSpeaks Solar. SheSpeaks Solar is an initiative to increase speaking opportunities for women at solar industry trade shows.
