If you aren’t already aware, Middlebury’s Solar Decathlon team is in D.C. and ready to present their newly constructed solar home after months and months of preparation. The team started reconstructing the home in D.C. last week, and after a successful round of inspections, were the third team out of 19 to be deemed ready to present in this prestigious national competition.
Middlebury Magazine checked in with the team just a few days ago, check out their video and report. Additionally, the team has been taking beautiful videos and blogging the entire process, so definitely go over to their website if you are interested.
It is a really incredible project; I’m continually impressed with the standards Middlebury students set for themselves. We’ll be following the judging closely, so check in soon for updates, or keep an eye on their blog or twitter, @MiddSD for updates from the team.
