The Utah Renewable Energy Conference 2011 was a fantastic event!  Utahns and visitors from around the country came and learned about the exciting benefits of renewable energy and energy efficiency and how these technologies are becoming reality in Utah.  We hope you were able to join us, but either way we have posted the slides from all of the presentations at the conference below so you can review what you learned if you were there, or catch up on what you missed if you were not there.  We hope to see you soon at the Utah Solar Tour 2011 on Saturday, September 24th!
