Green Blog: Maryland Team Wins Solar House Contest

Jim Tetro/Department of Energy Solar Decathlon Intended for a working couple who can use the house as home and office, the winning entry has a split butterfly roofline directing stormwater runoff into an axis at the core of the house. A green roof slows rainwater runoff to the landscape while improving the house’s energy efficiency. A team from the University of Maryland has taken top honors at the Solar Decathlon , a competition for small, cost-effective solar-powered houses sponsored by the Department of Energy. The entries have been on view on the National Mall in Washington for over a week. A project manual and a video walk-through for the winning entry are here . Recently Joanna Foster reported in The Times on an entry from the New York area.
