Kemery Company hosts Knoxville’s most important Solar Seminar


We spent this past Saturday in a lively and informative meeting presented by our Solar Distributor, Kemery Company. John Kemery brought together some of the biggest players in the East Tennessee solar thermal and solar photovoltaic markets. Some of the presenters were comprised of TVA representatives, installers, customers, John Kemery himself, manufacturers, engineers, non-profit solar organizations, and Paul Platillero of Cara-Sol Energy.

The two meetings were for informational purposed and were extremely educational and informative for the audience, which was comprised of future solar customers, electrical and plumbing contractors and members of industries that are stakeholders in the East Tennessee Solar market.

The meetings took place at the U.T. Conference Center in downtown Knoxville. While Longo Electric was not a presenter, we enjoyed being able to provide answers to NEC questions and general installation questions asked by potential future customers.

This was a day of sharing knowledge and not a day of salesmanship, however, and each participant, including myself, left the room with a greater depth of solar energy knowledge.

We would like to thank our solar parts distributor for hosting this event and we look forward to attending again next year. Please stay tuned for future solar event dates, times, and locations!
