Orange County Great Park, Irvine, California
October 8-18, 2015

University of California, Irvine; Chapman University; Irvine Valley College; and Saddleback College

Casa Del Sol placed ninth overall at the U.S. Department of Energy Solar Decathlon 2015. The team, made up of the University of California, Irvine; Chapman University; Irvine Valley College; and Saddleback College, earned second place in the Engineering Contest.

Following the event, Casa Del Sol remained at the Great Park’s festival site where the competition took place. It took a couple of years to determine where the house would permanently reside. In 2017, the Casa Del Sol house was purchased by a private individual who intends to use it as an office. The house may also be publicly showcased in the future.
