The Solar Decathlon, hosted by the U.S. Department of Energy, challenges 20 teams from universities to design, build and operate solar-powered houses. These teams work for two years on houses showcased on the National Mall in Washington, D.C.
I went to the Solar Decathlon over the weekend. Neat stuff! I really liked the entry from Appalachian State University called The Solar Homestead. It didn’t place highly in the competition, though. —Wright
