The Solar Decathlon
Eco Company visits the campus of Santa Clara University where a team of students participate in a biannual competition called the Solar Decathlon sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy. What kind of competition is it? They have to design and build the greenest most energy efficient house. They build it, then dismantle it and take it to the Capital Mall in Washington, D.C. to be judged. While Eco Company makes themselves at home in the house that placed 3rd in the competition 2 years ago, Adam gets a tour of the home they are readying for this year's competition. It's possibly a preview of homes of the future.
