American Solar Energy Society (ASES) Acquires Solar Nation

At last week's SOLAR 2009 conference, the American Solar Energy Society (ASES) announced that it acquired Solar Nation, an online advocacy organization.

"By joining forces both organizations will be able to take advantage of natural synergies to expand outreach and grassroots advocacy efforts in collaboration with industry partners," said Brad Collins, Executive Director of the American Solar Energy Society. "We welcome Solar Nation and its outstanding community of solar citizens."

Chris Stimpson, Executive Campaigner for Solar Nation stated, "One of the things I appreciate most about ASES is its close ties with the groundswell of interest in solar in America. This close liaison will allow us to offer an advocacy channel to even more people."

This agreement was effective May 1 and terms were not disclosed.
