Going to Solar Power International? Pack your sneakers.

This year, Sol Systems will host Run With SOLar 5k, the first race ever at the largest solar trade show in North America. Here’s why we run, and why we invite you to join us at the starting line.

Keep solar strong

Run With SOLar 5k will benefit the missions of two solar non-profits doing important work: The Solar Foundation and Grid Alternatives. 100% of proceeds from race registration will directly support their work. Read about their work on our website, or visit them directly to learn more.

Keep pace with the industry

Sessions, panels, exhibit halls, Quick Talks, receptions…repeat. There’s a lot to look forward to at SPI (like a meeting with our project finance or investment management teams, or Colin Murchie’s presentation on Waking the Sleeping Giant of the commercial solar market). Here’s one more reason…

Run solo, as a team, or walk. Get energized as you keep pace alongside industry partners, peers, and competitors. The Run With SOLar 5k is an official timed race, and there will be winners and bragging rights doled out in several categories, not available to those watching from the sidelines.

Embrace challenge

Taking commercial-scale solar projects – arguably one of the most challenging sectors in the industry – to the finish line requires similar diligence, efficiency, and teamwork as training for a race. Whether running a 5K or financing your commercial-scale project, we invite you to #TrainWithSOL.

Register now to join us at the starting line. Spots are limited.
