Solar Decathlon Continues Through Sunday

Saturday, October 12, 2013

By Solar Decathlon

The U.S. Department of Energy Solar Decathlon competition wrapped up this morning with announcements of overall winners—but the public event continues through Sunday evening.

Now’s the time to come see the competition winners and all the spectacular houses that were all designed, built, and operated by collegiate students from across the United States and around the world.

This is the last weekend to visit the U.S. Department of Energy Solar Decathlon 2013 at the Orange County Great Park.

Today and Sunday, the competition houses are open for free public tours from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. When 8 p.m. rolls around on Sunday, construction trucks will once again surround Decathlete Way, and the houses will be disassembled.

It’s always sad to see the decathletes and their houses go home after a Solar Decathlon. But it would be even sadder if they go before you’ve had a chance to see their amazing work and hear their inspiring stories.

Plan your visit to the Solar Decathlon village today!
