Competing live in a stadium setting at the combined Energy Storage North America and Intersolar North America conferences and expos, teams will be scored on a point system for quality, safety, speed, and other criteria. The winning team from each match advances to the next round, with the championship-round winner named the Solar Games Champion—and winning at $10,000 top prize.
There were six matchups in the 2022 tournament. Each matchup lasted 75-90 minutes. The first round was a grid-tied installation; the winners from Day One’s matchups moved on to Day Two.
The semi-final matchups were an off-grid installation. The winners from those rounds competed in the championship round, which was a grid-tied installation.
