OCTOBER IS MY FAVORITE SOLAR MONTH

It's true. October is a great month--not just the cooler air, the glint of pumpkins or the crunch of pine cones and acorns in the yard.

October is the amazing month of the Solar Decathlon! Sponsored by the US Department of Energy, this annual event
on the Mall in Washington, DC, shows the ingenuity of teams from around the world. Twenty college and university teams compete to design, build, and operate the most attractive and energy-efficient solar-powered house from now until October 18th. . The aim is to build a Zero Energy Home, which produces as much energy from renewable sources, as it consumes.
