 Severe weather impacts, stimulating investment in new energy products on agenda.

SUNRNR of Virginia, Inc., a Shenandoah Valley based solar generator manufacturer will be joining the White House Business Council and Business Forward for a briefing at the White House with senior Administration officials on Wednesday, April 20, 2016. Attendees will discuss the President's agenda to curb climate change, ways to prepare for and mitigate the effects of increasingly frequent severe weather, and how to make the United States the world leader in sustainable energy production.

Participating businesses will brief Administration officials on how severe weather impacts their businesses and discuss how the government can help spur investments that will bring new energy products and solutions to market. Past briefings have included U.S. Secretary of Energy Ernest Moniz, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Gina McCarthy, Special Assistant to the President for Energy & Climate Change Dan Utech, Managing Director of the President’s Council on Environmental Quality Christy Goldfuss, and other senior Administration officials from the Environmental Protection Agency, Department of Energy, and Council on Environmental Quality. Participant experiences will be posted on social media at

SUNRNR has advocated for alternative energy solutions for severe weather and disaster preparedness for many years. They have been steadfast National Preparedness Month (NPM) Coalition members, promoting NPM and America’s PrepareAthon through social media, blogging, newsletters, and press releases. SUNRNR has also championed the easing of difficulties many companies face in bringing new energy products to market, and participated in a White House Small Business Exporters Roundtable and a U.S. Trade Mission to the Canary Islands in 2015.  Both of those events explored and encouraged the entry of new energy products into foreign markets.
