Birds-eye-view-solar-decathlon-2009

This morning the final results of the Solar Decathlon were announced.  As expected, Technische Universität Darmstadt, aka Team Germany, took first prize.  This is Team Germany’s second straight victory.  In the net metering contest, the team gained almost thirteen more points than the next closest team, Illinois, which solidified the victory.  Although the Popular Choice award will be released later this weekend, the competition is officially over.  Make sure to check out all 20 Solar Decathlon homes from 2009 — they’re beautiful and inspirational.  Here are the results (updated with Popular Choice later):

    This is an amazing contest. I hope that they do a similar one but focusing on water conservation instead of energy.
