Meeting Topic: UNLV Solar Decathlon Project
The Autonomy House

UNLV's Autonomy HouseThe UNLV Solar Decathalon Team will compete in the 2013 Department of Energy Solar Decathalon.

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. The next one will take place in the fall of 2013 and it is special, for a few reasons. All previous Solar Decathlons have been held in Washington, D.C. In 2013, it will take place in sunny Orange County, California. That puts it into easy driving distance for Southern Nevadans. What a great opportunity!

If that’s not special enough for you, how about the fact that UNLV is among the teams that will be competing? This is very exciting news and something our entire community can and should rally behind. Students and faculty celebrated the recent announcement after years of hard work honing their winning application. Congratulations to Team Las Vegas! [Read the full article]
