Attention all solar industry stakeholders: Each year, Solar Builder seeks to highlight the most outstanding PV projects in the solar industry. Any PV project is eligible — big or small — and we want you to tell us about them.
Was your installation innovative in some way? Did it help a community? Does the site just look really awesome? If it’s inventive, interesting or impactful, it will be considered for our annual Project of the Year awards.
How to nominate a project:
Step 1: Head to www.solarbuildermag.com/project-awards
Step 2: Fill out the form by Aug. 31, 2019 (construction completion date must fall between Oct. 1, 2018 and July 31, 2019).
That’s it! At that point we will gather the submissions, choose a field of the best nominees, and then let our readers vote on which project stands out the most during the month of September.
The top vote-getters will be awarded with Gold, Silver and Bronze designations. All remaining nominees are eligible to be selected for an Editor’s Choice award. Every winner will be featured in our November/December magazine, with the Gold Project of the Year earning the cover story.
We leave the criteria for choosing winners vague because we want the project submissions themselves and the stories conveyed to lead the way. Spare no detail in explaining what was unique or outstanding about the project. Top vote-getters last year stood out for everything from their large-scale financial complexity to their creativity in small-scale, off-grid problem-solving. Back in 2017, the Project of the Year was located on tribal lands. In 2014, the winner was a brewery. What wins this year is anyone’s guess. All we know for sure right now are the losers: Those who read this and don’t send in a nomination.
