Solar Decathlon

The Solar Decathlon joins 20 college and university teams in a competition on the National Mall in Washington D.C. to design, build, and operate an attractive and energy-efficient solar-powered house.

This year the "solar village" will be on the Mall from October 9 - 18, 2009.

The Solar Decathlon looks at 10 areas for each house:

* Architecture
* Market Viability
* Engineering
* Lighting Design
* Communications
* Comfort Zone
* Hot Water
* Appliances
* Home Entertainment
