Middlebury Submits Bid To Compete in 2013 Solar Decathlon

Still riding high from their fourth place finish at the 2011 U.S. Department of Energy Solar Decathlon, the Middlebury team has already begun to look ahead to the next Solar Decathlon competition. United States Senator from Vermont Patrick Leahy announced via Twitter early last week that the Vermont Congressional Delegation was supporting Middlebury’s proposal to compete in the 2013 decathlon.

Founded in 2002, the Solar Decathlon is an international, biennial competition to design and operate the most attractive and functional energy-efficient, solar-powered home. At the 2011 competition, Middlebury placed first in Market Appeal, Communications and Home entertainment, placing fourth overall and won the PBS “Sunny Ideas” people’s vote.

  1. Please adjust the title for this post. Middlebury has submitted a proposal to compete. Proposals are evaluated by the Department of Energy, and 20 teams are selected thereafter. Middlebury does not know whether it will be competing in 2013.
