Project Updates

The blitz has been a gigantic boost for the SolarWorks Plus team.  We believe that is has allowed us to go from the bottom of the pack to the top.  Our innovations have been tested and final designs and implementation is full speed ahead.  We have shared our innovations with our coach.  Our innovations include modifications to the actual solar panel and well thought out approaches to outreach and partnerships.

We look forward to having the opportunity to pitch our scalable innovations to compete for the first place prize.

We are trying to recruit another member to our team.  The person has experience in battery manufacturing.
