Since the inaugural launch in San Francisco in September 2011, Cleanweb has gone national. Cleanweb hackathons are designed to gather innovative programmers, designers and entrepreneurs to bring attention to and create technologies that solve environmental issues in a 48 hour time period. So far this year Cleanweb has hacked New York City, Boston, Boulder, Santa Clara and June 8th will mark the first Cleanweb Solar Hackathon in Oakland.
At Cleanweb Solar, teams will be tasked with creating new ways to accelerate solar energy development and adoption. The Solar Hackathon, hosted by Sungevity – a residential solar company – is a great opportunity for industry professionals and developers to network, create new tech solutions that promote solar energy and compete to win cash prizes for best app.
Genability is a proud sponsor of the event and is joined by BrightPath, WSGR, Spring Ventures, One Pacific Coast Bank, and .Net. Also, we are probably going to work on a project or two. Top of our list is something related to Virtual Net Metering (a.k.a solar for those of us who live in apartment buildings). There are some interesting changes afoot (http://www.cpuc.ca.gov/PUC/energy/DistGen/vnm.htm).
Hackathon sign-ups are still open. Reserve your spot and become a part of what could be the next big thing in clean technologies. If you want to be on the winning team.. look for “Something on Virtual Net Metering”.
