Powered by the Sun--Solar Decathlon (#102)
In 2002, groups of university students from around the country converged on Washington, DC's National Mall to compete in the first ever Solar Decathlon. Their mission: to design, build, and operate the most effective and efficient solar-powered house. With a special focus on the inner city townhouse created by students from Pittsburgh's Carnegie Mellon University, this program shows that innovative, energy efficient homes are not far off fantasies of the future.
