Everyone wins at this year’s Solar Battle of the Bands
San Francisco, CA (July 29, 2015) The fifth annual Solar Battle of the Bands, a solar industry party and musical competition presented by Quick Mount PV, took place Wednesday, July 15, during the 2015 Intersolar North America trade show. Attended by an overflowing and enthusiastic crowd of nearly 1400 solar professionals, the after-hours event at the Mezzanine featured bands from SolarCity, Inovateus Solar, Sungevity and Quick Mount PV. Attendees voted for their favorite band in four unique categories, allowing each band a chance to be recognized for certain aspects of their performance.
In a Solar Battle of the Band’s first, every band wrote and performed an original song. But the prize for Best Original Song went to SolarCity’s, PV Wonder, for their fun, ska-inspired, “We’re SolarCity”, which got the crowd dancing. The award for Best On-Stage Costume went to the always creative and good-humored Inovateus Solar’s, Rev. Ray and the Everlasting Incentives. The band went with a country-themed set, complete with light-up cowboy hats and leather chaps. Returning champions Sungevity’s, The Killa Watts won the well-deserved award for Best Solo Performance, as well as Best Overall Performance. The night’s official line-up ended with Quick Mount PV’s energetic, Northerner and the Rafters, featuring an impressive horn section.
To finish the evening, musicians from each band got on stage together to perform a multi-band encore. A cherry on top of what was truly a Solar Battle of the Band’s all-star event!
Solar Battle of the Bands was made possible by our generous company sponsors Inovateus Solar, Wiley, AEE Solar, Mounting Systems Inc., SolarEdge Technologies and media/nonprofit sponsors SolarPro, Solar Power World, Solar Energy International, Intersolar North America, and NABCEP.
