|Clemson's Solar D entry, Indigo Pine|
Monday, October 12
Greetings from the Clemson Solar Decathlon team!
We are currently on day 14 of the competition, and the Indigo Pine solar house is in full swing. We successfully completed the construction of our 1,000 SF home in nine short days and were the only team to do so without the assistance of pre-built house modules. We also are of the few, if not only, homes to built by only students and faculty without the help of contractors. Teeming with innovation above and beyond the competition requirements, the Indigo Pine team is proud to share our ideas with the public, averaging around 1,000 visitors to the home per day.
