The pre-registration is currently closed. If you would like to attend this event, please come to the NWPPA registration desk at the hotel, and our onsite coordinator will be happy to help you.
Who Should Attend:
Electric utility engineering and operations personnel, as well as those in information technology, safety, purchasing, environmental, accounting, communications, or any area where a more in-depth knowledge of engineering and operations would be beneficial.
Wild times are facing our industry, but attending this conference will help your utility deal with these important issues: community solar; microgrids; residential solar generations; changing state and federal regulations; aging infrastructure; energy storage; changing workforce; no/low load growth; demand response; and much more! Mark your calendar today and plan to attend. At this year's E&O Conference, you will find:
- Opportunities to meet your peers during events such as our engineering, linemen, and purchasing and stores roundtables; educational sessions; and general sessions. Peer networking is the number-one reason for attendance for many attendees.
- Educational sessions that will present the latest best practices and innovations in your line of work.
- Meet with exhibitors in our trade show to go over your needs back at your utility and see the latest technology, consulting services, and more in person.
The 2017 NWPPA E&O provides the best bang for your buck! Compare the E&O hotel rates, registration fee, and benefits (such as the number of meals that are provided as part of the fee) to other events of this size, and you will find that it is easy on your budget. A good price for a quality event makes for a good deal. We’re looking forward to seeing you in Reno.
