Solar District Cup competitors experience what it’s like to be a successful developer or designer of solar-plus-storage solutions that have real-world impact.
What better way to prepare for a career in the solar industry than by taking on the role of a solar developer to reimagine the distributed energy system for a campus or urban district? Teams are challenged to think outside the panel and develop creative solutions using actual energy data.
The Solar District Cup connects training, industry, and real-world challenges in a competition format. Student competitors gain first-hand industry experience designing innovative energy systems, creating financial models, and pitching your final project to experts.
This year, we’ll provide teams with free access to additional industry-leading tools, improved rules, and streamlined access to educational resources.
This is the kind of experience employers want to see on resumes.
But don’t just take our word—here’s what a Solar District Cup alum had to say:
“I met with industry professionals and learned that this is exactly what they do for a career. I was excited to hear how relevant our work for this competition was and how it can translate to the real world.”
Continue to set yourself apart from others by challenging yourself in this exciting and career-focused program.
