Intersolar & Energy Storage North America Opens Applications for the 2025 Solar Games Competition

Install teams from across North America are encouraged to apply for the fifth annual tournament.

San Diego, CA & Portland, ME — Intersolar & Energy Storage North America (ISNA/ESNA), the industry’s flagship solar + storage event, is now accepting applications for the fifth-annual Solar Games competition to be held February 25-27, 2025 at the San Diego Convention Center in San Diego, CA.

During the Solar Games, teams are tasked with building residential solar + storage systems—including solar modules, racking, inverters, battery storage, and other components—live in a stadium setting within the exhibit hall. Their work is scored on a point system for quality, safety, speed, and other criteria. The winning team advances until the final-round winner is named Solar Games Champion—and awarded $10,000.

“To any installer that is hesitant to apply for the Solar Games, you only live once, and if you truly believe in your company, your team, and yourself, then you should apply,” said Karl Hercula, Vice President Field Operations of Michigan Solar Solutions (2024 Solar Games Runner Up). “This is the best way to put the knowledge and skills that you’ve obtained throughout the years to the test.”

Team Requirements & Details
  • Interested teams throughout North America must apply by September 20, 2024.
  • All team members must be OSHA 10 certified; one member must be NABCEP certified or a licensed electrician.
  • Cash prizes include: first place $10,000, second place $3,500, and third place $2,500.
  • An advisory board representing K2 Systems, ReVision Energy, Rolls Battery Engineering, Institute for Building Technology and Safety, Twende Solar, and Solar Cowboyz will help develop and oversee the competition.
  • Sponsor-provided equipment will later be donated to Twende Solar for use in projects empowering under-resourced communities with renewable energy systems.
