Over the past academic year, students competing in the Solar District Cup Class of 2021 have been diligently working on their solar-plus-storage designs. Now, they’re getting ready to pitch their final projects to their division peers and a panel of industry judges at the 2021 Competition Event. 

On April 25-26, 2021, 29 student teams will participate in a two-day, three-part event where they’ll present their projects to a panel of industry judges, find out the winners in each division, and compete for the title of Project Pitch Champion. The schedule of events includes: 

  • Sunday, April 25
    • 12 – 6 p.m. EDT - Solar District Cup Student Division Presentations
  • Monday, April 26
    • 11 – 11:30 a.m. EDT - Solar District Cup Division Winner Announcement
    • 2 – 3 p.m. EDT - Solar District Cup Pitch Championship

On Monday, April 26, U.S. Department of Energy leadership will join the Division Winner Announcement to award the first-, second-, and third-place winners in each division. Then, the top three teams will present an 8-minute project pitch to their peers and a public audience, who will vote for their favorite team to become the Project Pitch Champion. We need you to help us decide the Project Pitch Champion. Join us to vote on the winner!
