Solar House in St. Paul

Posted by Kirk
I just found out about an really cool opportunity on the St. Paul campus of the University of Minnesota. The solar house designed and built by students at the U of M as part of the Solar Decathalon will be on display and open to the public September 16-18, 11 a.m.-3 p.m. The house will be located at the University of Minnesota St. Paul campus on the north side of Buford Place just east of Gortner Avenue.

According to their website, the tours are practice for the public tours the U of M team will give during the Solar Decathlon competition in Washington, D.C. in October.

You can watch a video about the solar house on their website but they do not have an embedding function. I'm a little disappointed in my alma mater on that note. While the U of M does have a youtube channel that allows embedding of video they don't have this particular video on there.
