The US Department of Energy Solar Decathlon will be held at Orange County Great Park, Irvine, California, from October 8 – 18, 2015.  Open to the public free of charge Thursday – Sunday each weekend, the Solar Decathlon gives visitors the opportunity to tour solar-powered houses, gather ideas to use in their own homes, and learn how energy-saving features can help them save money today. This competition challenges collegiate teams to design, build, and operate solar-powered houses that are cost-effective, energy-efficient, and attractive. The winner of the competition is the team that best blends affordability, consumer appeal, and design excellence with optimal energy production and maximum efficiency.
