Neighborhood Housing Services of South Florida is supporting competitors in the American-Made Solar Prize Round 6, a competition designed to energize U.S. solar innovation through a series of contests that accelerate the entrepreneurial process from years to months.
To date, the Solar Prize has funded 120 teams with more than $15 million in prizes, helping spur countless connections between entrepreneurs and experts at the nation’s top test facilities, makerspaces, universities, and the U.S. Department of Energy’s national labs.
The prize offers a total of $4.1 million in cash and voucher prizes to teams of creative individuals and entrepreneurs who are ready to advance conceptual solar solutions toward product realities. Through three contests, participants compete for progressively larger prizes, including an optional justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion- (JEDI) focused prize that rewards efforts to lower barriers to solar adoption in underserved communities.
With the recent launch of Round 6, the competition is now seeking innovators, entrepreneurs, and those with an idea to revolutionize the solar industry to join the competition.
