Purdue Part of International Solar Home Competition

Purdue University is one of 20 teams chosen to compete in the U.S. Department of Energy Solar Decathlon 2011, reports the Purdue News Bureau.

The teams, from 16 U.S. and four foreign universities, will compete to design, build and operate the most affordable, attractive and energy-efficient solar-powered house. The houses will be set up and judged on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., in fall 2011.

This is Purdue's first time in the Solar Decathlon. DOE held the first competition in 2002 and has held it biennially since 2005.
