U.S. Department of Energy Solar Decathlon

WVU Solar Decathlon is an official student-led organization addressing modern family and economical needs in order to produce an attractive, commercially viable solar house.

In 2013, West Virginia University, for the first time ever, has the opportunity to compete in the US Department of Energy’s Solar Decathlon. The idea for WVU to enter the competition was started by the engineering students from the College of Engineering and Mineral Resources. Numerous subgroups along with the different colleges of the University will aid in the creation of the WVU Solar House. The colleges include the College of Business and Economics, Davis College of Agriculture, Natural Resources, and Design, and College of Creative Arts.
