Only Days To Go - Open House Saturday & Sunday 10-6

With only days to go before the house is disassembled and prepped for its trip to Washington D.C., the Illinois Solar Decathlon team has completed construction and would like to invite the public and students alike to tour our home this weekend, the 12th and 13th of September from 10-6. There will be students on hand to give tours, answer questions and provide information beyond what is online.

Over the last week, the team has been working tirelessly to complete the final details of the home, from final trim work to touching up paint and installing the shading devices. We still have a few small pieces of work to do, but everything is taking shape. Our engineers have also been working hard to determine strategy for the competition, implement our control system, and test all the equipment twice.

Once again, the team would like to thank all of our extremely generous sponsors for their kindness that made this entry to the competition possible. From products to expertise to funding, we would not be where we are without the help of them. Please visit our support page and recognize all the companies and funds that helped us out.

We have also placed some new images online, so be sure to check those out. If you are interested in any more information, please feel free to contact us at any time. Thanks again for the interest in our team and the competition.
