Day 4: Villa Solar Under Construction Along the RiverThursday, June 10, 2010
Construction of the Solar Decathlon Europe houses continued today, June 10. Progress is evident every day.
The location is gorgeous. The houses are positioned along one side of the Manzanares River. Behind them, on a hill, is the Palacia Real (Royal Palace). Already, the view of the partially completed houses along the river is beautiful. Solar Decathlon Europe will be a photogenic event. The organizers choose a great site.
Byron Stafford is the site operations manager of the U.S. Department of Energy Solar Decathlon. Throughout the Solar Decathlon Europe competition, U.S. Department of Energy Solar Decathlon organizers are reporting from Madrid.
