WSU Solar Decathlon to Unveil Exhibit

Multidisciplinary competition set to award nearly $2 million in awards.

Washington State University students are competing as one of 14 international collegiate teams in the US Department of Energy Solar Decathlon 2017 competition. This interdisciplinary team is designing a modular, solar-powered home for urban environments.

The teams will design, build, and promote a solar home according to predetermined guidelines. Each team will design their home for their region and all will have a unique approach to this project. WSU is the only team representing the Pacific Northwest region and faces unique challenges as a result.

The interdisciplinary team at WSU invites all local media to follow along with the team’s creative journey, culminating in the Solar Decathlon event to be held September 2017 in Denver. The team has a unique concept and design and is working towards better informing and educating the public. Event attendees will be able to ask questions about the project and learn about the unique implication of renewable technology.

Monday, January 30th @ 4:30pm in the Carpenter Hall Gallery. Refreshments will be provided.

Timothy Goheen – Project Lead
