UNC Charlotte Students Complete Solar House

UNC Charlotte students completed its house, UrbanEden, on Friday, August 23 for the US Department of Energy Solar Decathlon 2013 competition from October 3 to 13. 


They are one of 20 academic teams participating this year. They will spend one week testing the house and all of its features before dismantling it and getting ready to ship it to Irvine, California for the competition. Once there, they will have to reconstruct the house.
