Solar Power World held the 2014 Top 400 Solar Contractor’s Gala Monday night at the ARIA Resort and Casino, where more than 200 contractors gathered for a night of networking, dinner, awards and celebration.

During dinner Eileen Robertson, accompanied by her three children, honored Everybody Solar with the 2014 Brian D.
