The Solar Forum, a conference designed to introduce HVACR contractors to solar power and the mechanical and electrical systems expected to play a bigger role as harnessing the sun’s energy comes into wider use, was postponed for 10 months due to the worldwide surge in coronavirus infections.

The event will now take place November 14-15 at the Crowne Plaza at the airport in Phoenix, Arizona. The Solar Forum will be presented by the Air Conditioning Contractors of America (ACCA) and Pearl Certification, which provides third-party certification of high-performing homes. It had been scheduled for late January, also at the Crowne Plaza in Phoenix.

“While it is unfortunate that we must wait another few months to have this unique and first-of-its-kind event, the safety of our attendees, vendors, staff, and presenters remains our top priority,” said Deb Weiner, manager of communications and strategic partnerships at ACCA, in an email.

The forum, sponsored by Mosaic, which arranges financing for home improvements that focus on sustainability, will feature educational sessions, new products and chances to network with contractors who work in HVACR and solar power.

The cost to attend is $550 per person. For more information, visit
