Sol-Up wins second Solar Games installation competition at Intersolar

Intersolar North America (ISNA) and Energy Storage North America (ESNA), the flagship of the solar + storage industry, concluded their first combined conference and expo in Long Beach, California. Despite pandemic pressures, the event provided a safe, collaborative and productive experience for more than 275 exhibitors and 4,500 attendees.

“We are delighted to have hosted a successful in-person event for the solar and energy storage industry,” said Wes Doane, events director for Intersolar North America and Energy Storage North America. “The collaboration of all ISNA/ESNA 2022 participants allowed us to follow the COVID-19 guidelines while creating opportunities for solar and storage professionals from around the world to collaborate. The joint effort of both communities to advance the clean energy transition proves that we are stronger together.”

This year’s event welcomed attendees from hundreds of organizations, all 50 US states and 81 countries for three days of learning, networking and business. Participants gained key insights from expert speakers during keynote addresses focused on grid resilience, utility leadership and the transition to renewable energy, as well as conference sessions that explored critical topics in distributed and utility solar and storage. In the shared expo hall, market-leading companies offered installers, integrators and utilities the chance to experience the latest products, solutions and services in the industry.

The conference also showcased the industry’s top talent at the second annual Solar Games competition. The games installation teams tasked with building on- and off-grid residential solar and storage systems live in the expo hall with material from sponsor such as PV pallet. The bracket-style tournament consisted of multiple competitive rounds in which seven teams from across the US competed against each other to install solar panels, racks, inverters and battery storage. Defending their championship title from the first annual Solar Games, Las Vegas, Nevada-based Sol-Up was named the 2022 Solar Games Champion — and took home a $10,000 cash prize. Second place went to Solar Works Energy of Albuquerque, New Mexico and third place to Aloha Solar Power of Encinitas, California.

ISNA/ESNA would like to thank conference content partner Strategists, as well as its association and media partners, for their contribution to the success of this year’s event.
