One month from now, a solar-powered village will suddenly appear in Denver, Colorado, showcasing the latest innovation in building science and design. From modular construction to water conservation and re-use strategies, this year’s crop of Solar Decathlon houses has it all when it comes to technology, design and creativity.

But don’t take our word for it, see for yourself in this photo gallery that breaks down all 12 university team houses. Then, mark your calendar for October 5-15, in the Mile High City. It’s an event you’re not going to want to miss.

Responding to a housing crunch in their area, EnCity is an urban infill community composed of tiny homes that share resources, including solar power and collected rainwater. The community micro-grid manages the collected solar energy and rainwater and distributes these resources among the residents. One tiny house and a clubhouse will be displayed at the competition.
