Solar Games 2020

Compete in the First-Ever Solar Games!

Solar Games LogoSet to debut at Intersolar North America from February 4-6, 2020 at the San Diego Convention Center, the Solar Games is a bracketed competition where eight teams will build a residential rooftop solar + storage system. Comradery, technique, and focus will be on display as the four-person teams compete in a stadium setting live on the Expo Hall floor during all three days of the #isna2020 expo and conference.

Tasked with installing the main product components of a solar + storage system—solar modules, racking, inverters, and battery storage—install teams will be judged on a point system for quality, safety, and speed. They will have 30 days in advance to familiarize themselves with the products pre-selected by the Intersolar North America Solar Games committee.

Two teams on side-by-side 16×22 foot rooftops will face off at a time, with the victor moving on to the next round. The championship-round winner will be named the first-ever Solar Games Champion on the final day.
