>Greeting from the team manager<

In development on November 23, 2010 by Solar Decathlon UIUC

Currently the University of Illinois 2011 Solar Decathlon team is working, as it has throughout the entire design process, to successfully integrate all the elements of the home into a cohesive design.  At this point in time the team is selecting and refining the individual components of the home to ensure the team’s goals for the project are met.  Individual elements and building systems are being designed to strike a balance of cost and performance, resulting in a house designed for success on the Washington Mall next fall.

The team is excited for the busy year ahead leading up to the competition.  We are currently looking forward to displaying our design at the International Builders Show in Orlando this upcoming January.  Please make sure to seek us out at the show and follow our progress through the blog portion of the website.

As always the team is looking from support from building industry experts and others interested in the Solar Decathlon.  If you are interested in supporting the University of Illinois Team please contact us at solardecathlon@illinois.edu
