65 teams from 64 institutions competed this year in the Solar District Cup, sponsored by the Department of Energy. Over the weekend (April 23-24, 2022) 28 of those teams were selected as finalists. I am proud to say that not only did our Creighton team receive first place for our massive solar+battery proposal for Cheyney University, we additionally received first place for the best solar pitch of any team (i.e., overall winner).
A special hearty congratulations to students on the team lead by Dr. Andrew Baruth:
- Max Markuson DiPrince – Project Manager
- Alex Webert – Lead System Design
- Ashley (Nellie) Nelson – Financial Analyst
- Emma Goldsmith – Environmental Analyst
They were truly the “dream team,” which showed what a Creighton student is truly capable of!
