Solar Decathlon Coming to OC Great Park

New, 3 comments

It's official: the Solar Decathlon will trade Beltway pols for the real housewives of Orange County in 2013, now that Orange County Great Park officials have approved a deal to host the event for its first ever appearance outside of Washington DC. According to the OC Register, OCGP officials also voted to accept a $1 million grant from the US Department of Energy to plan the Decathlon--a biennial event that challenges student design teams to build "cost-effective, energy-efficient, and attractive" solar homes. The OC-hosted 2013 Solar Decathlon is scheduled for October 3 through 15, 2013. [OCR]
