  1. 0 Votes

    It is a competition between twenty teams of college students hosted by the US Department of Energy in October of 2009. The goal was to build the best solar-powered house (hence the name) in terms of energy efficiency, effectiveness, and attractiveness of the building. The teams had to design and then actually build the house (including getting money and supplies and working with contractors), transport (disassemble and reassemble) it to the National Mall in the capital, where they are publicly displayed and judged. You can find more information on the official website in citations.
