solar decathlon

Twenty student teams from around the globe complete to design, build, and operate the most attractive and most energy efficient solar powered home in the 2007 Solar Decathlon.

The event culminates in fall, when the teams transport their solar homes to a solar villige on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. Using only energy from the sun, the teams generate enough electricity to run a modern household.  The teams compete in ten contests to determine an overall winner.

You're invited

Come to the National Mall between October 12 - 20 (except October 17) to:

  1. Learn how to buy and install off-the-shelf energy- (and dollar-) saving systems.
  2. Connect with architects and engineers, and get inside the solar homes.
  3. Help Maryland take home the People's Choice Award for a second time in a row!
  4. Join the Maryland team in lobbying our representatives to support renewable energy initiatives.
