Illinois Earns 2nd Place

After months of hard work, and one long week of competition, the University of Illinois has finished the competition in 2nd place. Germany earned 1st and California earned 3rd.

The Illinois home, a response to rural vernacular that showcases modern technology and energy efficiency within a historically significant exterior performed extremely well in the objective contests, earning 1st place in Hot Water, Appliances and Home Entertainment. We also earned 2nd in net metering and comfort zone.

The team would like to thank all of the individuals and companies who helped us get to where we are today. Without your support and understanding, the home would never have been completed. We remain open for 3 more days on the National Mall and invite you to see a virtual tour of all the homes on the main Solar Decathlon website.
