Students competing in the Solar District Cup Class of 2022-2023 have been diligently working on their solar-plus-storage designs. Now, they’re getting ready to pitch their design proposals to their division peers and a panel of industry judges at the 2022-2023 Competition Event. 

On April 30-May 1, 2023, about three dozen student teams will participate in a two-day, three-part event where they will propose their designs 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 30
    • 12 – 6 p.m. EDT - Solar District Cup Student Division Presentations
  • Monday, May 1
    • 11 – 11:30 a.m. EDT - Solar District Cup Division Winner Announcement
    • 2 – 3 p.m. EDT - Solar District Cup Pitch Championship

On Monday, May 1, U.S. Department of Energy leadership will join the Division Winners Announcement to award the first-, second-, and third-place winners in each division. Then, the four 1st-place teams will each 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 for the winner!

Register to join the Pitch Championship, watch the students make their case, and then vote for one of the collegiate teams vying to become the Project Pitch Champion!
