Want to make your mark on the solar industry while competing against the brightest tech entrepreneurial minds in the Bay area? Interested in joining the ranks of women like Sloane Morgan (Customer Experience Officer, Sungevity), Jeanine Cotter (Founder, Luminalt) and Lynn Jurich (President, SunRun)?

Come hack solar – Join us for a 3-day hackathon this June 8-10, 2012 in Jack London Square, Oakland. The Cleanweb Solar Hackathon brings innovative programmers, designers, and business minds together for one weekend to develop ways to accelerate solar energy adoption. Participants build web-based solutions to make it easier, more efficient, and more enjoyable for people to power their lives with sunshine.

We are expecting dozens of coders, entrepreneurs, and developers to come and pioneer the solar industry in just this one weekend. The event will also provide young experts the opportunity to network with investors and sponsors. Experienced judges will evaluate the web apps and hand out prizes to the best app, the best user interface, and the best tech accomplishment.
