Come one, come all to the Irvine Great Park for the 2013 DOE Solar Decathlon, which started today! The event is free to the public and public viewing hours are 11am to 7pm on Oct 3 - 7 and Oct 10 -13.
Some of you may ask.. "What is a solar decathlon? Is there any running involved on my part?" The answer is NO RUNNING, but quite a bit of walking as you tour "solar homes" that have been built by university teams around the world to compete for the top honors at this DOE sponsored annual competition. Visitors get to see the latest in sustainable design, architecture and thinking as they tour the homes and talked to the passionate students who built these wonderful displays. If you are a novice, it is great place to come and learn about all sorts of fun sustainability and renewable topics. If you are a seasoned expert, you get the see the latest and greatest in the field!
This is the first year the event has been held outside of Washington DC, so lets show them what we're worth and get out to this event!
