On Sept. 24, 13 teams from Round 1 of the Solar Prize made their final pitches to a panel of expert reviewers and an audience of solar industry experts at Solar Power International in Salt Lake City, Utah. At the end of the day, two teams emerged as the final winners, each winning $500,000 in cash prizes and $75,000 in vouchers. Congratulations to teams Phase3 Photovoltaics and Solar Inventions!
