Concord, California September 29, 2015 -- The Solar Decathlon is an award-winning program that challenges collegiate teams to design, build, and operate solar-powered houses that are cost-effective, energy-efficient, and attractive. The winner of the competition is the team that best blends affordability, consumer appeal, and design excellence with optimal energy production and maximum efficiency.


"DC Solar is a strong believer in educating the next generation of architects and engineers on sustainable home building and design," said DC Solar Founder, Jeff Carpoff. "Because the Solar Decathlon provides participating students with unique training that prepares them to enter our nation's clean-energy workforce, supporting this program aligns perfectly with the goals of our company. We are proud that we will be on hand to provide the decathletes the lighting they need as they work through those long nights."

"The Solar Decathlon depends on the valuable support of our many sponsors," said Richard King, director of the U.S. Department of Energy Solar Decathlon. "The sponsorship provided by DC Solar helps ensure that the Solar Decathlon provides a rich learning experience for the student decathletes and educates the public about the money-saving opportunities and environmental benefits presented by clean-energy products and design solutions."

The next Solar Decathlon will take place at the Orange County Great Park in Irvine, CA. Open to the public free of charge from October 8-18, 2015, the competition houses will be open to visitors on eight days over two weekends. The Solar Decathlon enables visitors to tour the houses, gather ideas to use in their own homes, and learn how energy-saving features can help them save money today.
