2011 Solar Decathlon


Finished - Successful

The Solar Decathlon 2011 is an international competition held by the Department of Energy that challenges twenty university teams to design and build the most efficient, affordable, and attractive net-zero solar-powered house. Caltech has been selected as one of the twenty finalists in the 2011 competition and will be building its house on the National Mall in September 2011. The team is working with the Southern California Institute of Architecture to produce an awe-inspiring house and win the competition next year.
