U of M solar Icon settles in

Let the games begin!

The Solar Decathlon joins 20 college and university teams in a competition to design, build, and operate the most attractive and energy-efficient solar-powered house.

Team Minnesota is in 14th place, out of 20, at the beginning of day two of the Solar Decathlon competition in Washington D.C.. When I checked last night they were in ninth place. Hmm.

The U.S. Department of Energy has a great website if you’re interested in following the competition.

Read what Kelsey posted about the ICON in September, before it left for Washington D.C.

Any wagers on where Minnesota will place in the competition? Go Minnesota!
