Come join us for a presentation by the Clemson University Solar Decathlon team as they discuss their design and tell us how we can be involved!
“The Solar Decathlon is a competition hosted by the U.S. Department of Energy in collaboration with the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL). The competition challenges 20 colleges and universities to design, build and operate solar-powered houses that are cost-effective, energy-efficient and attractive. The houses will be open for visitation in Irvine, California, October 8-11 and October 15-18, 2015.
Clemson University’s Solar Decathlon project brings together an active team of students and faculty from across the university to collaborate on the design, construction and promotion of a prototypical, three-bedroom, 1,000 sq. ft., low-environmental-impact, net-zero, solar house that is cost-effective in today’s market and comfortable under South Carolina’s climate. We are focused on stitching together innovative building methods, Southern personality and local products into a home for a Southern family.”
