Solar Shines Through The Rain At Solar Power International

23 Sep 2015


All registration fees for the 5k went towards supporting GRID Alternatives and the Solar Foundation

Pouring rain could not stop most from waking up extra early to take on the streets of Anaheim with the impressive determination, good humor, and speed that are hallmarks of the solar energy industry. Thank you to everyone who had a part in making the #RunWithSOLar5K a fun and healthy way to start off SPI 2015!

The event was sold out, and 100% of the registration fees, which will be posted by SEIA and SEPA in the coming weeks, will be donated to the Solar Foundation and GRID Alternatives. The two organizations continue to do vital work to bring solar energy and jobs to all communities.

Congratulations to the winners! Everyone’s results may be found here.

IMPORTANT NOTE REGARDING YOUR “PACE” TIME:  Thanks to a misplaced cone, we all got a little “bonus” distance to make this a 5KPlus race. So, your pace time is based on 3.5 miles.

To recognize the race winners, Sol Systems is buying and retiring an SREC in the PJM region for each individual winner, and one for each winning team in order to offset carbon emissions. Individual winners will also receive a gift card to purchase running gear from a national sports store.

Thank you again, and all the best to you all for a successful and healthy wrap up to 2015!
