In this installer competition, attendees witness teams of installers build residential solar + storage systems right on the show floor during a two-day bracket-style tournament. Teams are judged on installation quality, safety, speed, and other criteria.
The two-day competition kicked off today and will conclude tomorrow, with six team matchups in each round, lasting 75 to 90 minutes. The winning team from each round advances to the next day’s competition, until the final-round winner is named Solar Games Champion and awarded $10,000. The second and third-place teams will win $3,500 and $2,500, respectively.
