In January, Intersolar North America and Energy Storage North America will converge in Long Beach – meaning the Solar Games are back in action! Taking place live at the Solar Games Stadium in the #isnaesna22 expo hall, the exciting two-day bracket-style tournament is free to all event attendees.
Seven installation teams from across the US will compete to build grid-connected and off-grid residential solar and storage systems. Installer teams are objectively and rigorously assessed for safety, technical accuracy and speed.
In addition to bragging rights, the winning team will take home a $10,000 cash prize – the largest in Solar Games history! The second and third place teams will receive prizes of $3,500 and $2,500, respectively.
