Student team leaders and their faculty advisor will present their project at Solar NV’s monthly meeting on April 19th. Here is a colorful description of The Autonomy House project from Team Las Vegas (PDF).
In a recent Green Living column published in the Las Vegas Review Journal, Solar NV co-founder Steve Rypka wrote:
The Solar Decathlon is a serious challenge and only twenty collegiate teams are chosen to compete in this prestigious biennial event, first held in 2002.
