The Solar Decathlon is an intercollegiate competition to design, build and operate a home powered completely by solar energy. In September 2007, twenty university teams from the US, Canada, and Europe transported their homes to Washington, D.C., where they constructed a "solar-village" on the National Mall. The event is a powerful public demonstration of solar energy, energy efficiency, and the best in home design. Returned to the National Mall with a compelling new design.
