H2Ouse, designed by the University of California, Davis, placed ninth overall at the U.S. Department of Energy 2017 Solar Decathlon. The team earned second place in the Communications Contest and third in Health & Comfort.
After the Solar Decathlon, H2Ouse remained at the event site in Denver as part of a purchase, along with two other 2017 Solar Decathlon houses, by the city of Denver. The city plans to use the houses to provide affordable housing to residents. “We are still in the process of selling it to the city,” University of California, Davis faculty advisor Tom Ryan said in the fall of 2018. “They have contacted us about coming to consult on the move from the competition site, but to my knowledge, it's still physically there.”
