2017 Solar Decathlon

October 5, 2017 - October 12, 2017

The U.S. Department of Energy Solar Decathlon is a collegiate competition made up of 10 contests that challenge student teams to design and build full-size, solar-powered houses. The winner of the competition is the team that best blends design excellence and smart energy production with innovation, market potential, and energy and water efficiency. Simply put, there’s nothing else like it.

The Solar Decathlon 2017 takes place October 5–9 and 12–15, 2017, in Denver, Colorado at the 61st & Peña Station on the University of Colorado A line commuter rail connecting Denver International Airport to downtown Union Station.

Open to the public free of charge during select public exhibit hours, the Solar Decathlon invites visitors to tour the team houses to gather ideas to use in their own homes. Consumers can learn just how easy it is and how good it feels to save energy, water, and money by making smart, sustainable choices.

Solar Decathlon 2017 also features a sustainability expo and professional, consumer, and middle school education events.
