Event Info:
The U.S. Department of Energy Solar Decathlon is a collegiate competition designed to challenge the minds of today's students to solve the renewable energy innovations of tomorrow. The award-winning program inspires the teams to design, build, and operate solar-powered houses. The goal of these houses is not only to be attractive and energy-efficient, but also cost-effective. The Solar Decathlon 2015 competition will take place in October 2015, at the Orange County Great Park in Irvine, California. The houses will be open to visitors for a total of eight days over two weekends. Open to the public free of charge, the Solar Decathlon gives visitors the opportunity to tour the houses, gather ideas to use in their own homes, and learn how energy-saving features can actually save money.
