FEATURE ARTICLES

To contribute a feature article, email your proposal or idea to Michael Puttré at mputtre@solarindustrymag.com.

Solar Industry generally publishes two types of timely articles:

  • Features that examine and analyze solar energy industry trends; and
  • Features that give our readership of industry professionals information about how to improve their operations.

These features are written by professional industry staff and contract journalists, and also by industry experts. All feature articles must be exclusives to Solar Industry.

Industry experts are invited to contact the editor with their ideas for bylined articles. Generally, these articles are 1,500 to 2,000 words in length and address the topic generically, without mentioning the author's company. However, a prominently displayed editor's note describes the author and company, and the author's photo is published when available. Charts, tables and photographs are also welcome to illustrate these articles.

Optionally, contributors can propose an article to match a scheduled topic listed on the editorial calendar. Contributors can also write about these listed topics at any other time, and articles addressing other relevant industry issues are also welcome.
