With over 500+ exhibitors, 125+ speakers, and 9,000+ attendees, we’re thrilled to kick off a new year with this fantastic solar and energy storage conference which starts next week January 17th-19th in San Diego. Intersolar North America and Energy Storage North America (ISNAESNA) is North America’s quintessential renewable energy conference and we are going so we can keep growing and be at the edge of this exciting and ever-evolving technology!

Reflecting on ISNAESNA 2023

Last year’s ISNAESNA conference, held in Long Beach, California, was so much fun; we had our Solar Games team, sales members, and management attending so we could maximize the knowledge gained like product releases like the HUG from IronRidge and our favorite solar software, Aurora, announcing feature updates and AI technology into their service. Overall, the conference did a great job of exciting those who are working and interested in the services the solar and battery industry has to offer. Each year, the technology is faster, more efficient, looks better, and lasts longer, so we can’t wait to learn about what’s new this year! 


Our 2024 Solar Games Team

We are also ready to give the Solar Games another shot, as we were eliminated after one round to the eventual competition winners. Most of all, we are excited to get more information about how to make solar, storage, and renewable energy upgrades even better this year for all Washingtonians!

Steve Cole - Installer Captain

Steve is one of Northwest Electric and Solar’s most experienced and talented solar electricians. He’s dedicated to quality installs and running an organized team, making him the go-to captain for our Solar Games squad.

Paul Brunt - Installer

Paul transitioned quickly from an energy apprentice to an energy lead, taking solar installations seriously and with compassion. Paul always leaves the worksites looking clean and better than they were before!

Blake Berlin - Installer

Blake has been with us for over a year and is an exemplary employee who practices all the values here at Northwest Electric and Solar. Weathering the storms and sunshine of Washington State, Blake ensures all the solar installations he works on are up to the NWES standard.

Justin Jackson - Installer

My name is Justin Jackson and Ive been installing solar for almost 2 years now. I’m 22 and this will be my first time attending solar games. I’m very excited to see what this is all about!

Teemu Karvonen - Coach

Teemu participated in last year’s Solar Games and did a phenomenal job installing the battery system flawlessly. His attention to detail and ensuring product install specifications are met make him the natural coach for our 2024 Solar Games squad!
