Commuting Contest (100 points)

Transportation returned to the U.S. Department of Energy Solar Decathlon in 2015 with the Commuting Contest, which simulated the driving patterns of a typical household. In this contest, teams drove an electric vehicle charged from their house electric system several times during the competition.

Full points were awarded for driving 25 miles or more in two hours or less eight times during contest week. Reduced points were earned for driving less than the required number of miles.

The final scores for the Commuting Contest are shown in the graphic below.
