Stanford Students Debut Solar-Powered Prefab Home

"The future of home design is in a box. At least, that’s where 100 Stanford University students are placing their bets. They’ve constructed a mechanical room that powers a house like the engine of a car.

The students have spent thousands of hours over the past two years designing and creating a prefabricated home on campus that they hope will win top honors at the U.S. Department of Energy’s biennial Solar Decathlon Competition that kicks off in Irvine, CA on Thursday.”

See Stanford’s team in action as they build their entry for the Solar Decathlon at QUEST.
