Solar power is often offered as one of the most promising forms of renewable energy. So how come OptiSolar, a local solar panel manufacturer has been laying off staff, and selling its project portfolio, valued at hundreds of millions of dollars, as its been unable to raise further financing? With advances in thin film and flexible, printable plastic solar cells, how effective can solar power be, and how close is the solar power industry to being able to deliver on the promise of the technology? And what do the Renewable Energy Financing Incentives under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 mean for early stage solar companies?

For answers to these questions and more, come hear our distinguished panel explore these and other topics on the future for Solar power.

David Arfin, Vice President, Customer Finance, SolarCity
