10 Reasons To Visit The Solar Decathlon

A free event that will blow your mind is about to land in the Denver area. It’s the Solar Decathlon: a multiday, multiteam, multidisciplinary competition that pits collegiate teams against one another in categories of design, engineering, energy, and more. (Goosebumps!) It’s essentially the national championship of solar home building. But, instead of tossing the ole pigskin, teams from the United States, Switzerland, and the Netherlands are building full-size houses featuring the latest sustainability tech to compete in 10 contests. It’s … kind of a big deal.

The 2017 event will be open to the public from October 5-8 and 12-15. We, the U.S. Department of Energy, host the event (so you know it’s legit), and since we’re passionate about spreading the renewables-word and supporting our amazing decathletes, we want YOU to help us by visiting. Honestly, there’s no good reason not to come, but just in case you need more convincing, here are our top 10 reasons.

#1: It’s easily accessible for Coloradans … and did we mention it’s FREE?
This year marks the first time in its 15-year history that the Solar Decathlon will be held in the greater Denver metro area. We’ve picked a fitting spot at Peña Station Next, a burgeoning “smart city” located between downtown Denver and the airport. Here, our futuristic solar-powered village will set the stage for the new sustainable urban development in progress. Just hop on the University of Colorado A line commuter rail and ride in style to the 61st & Peña Station at 6045 N. Richfield St., Denver, Colorado. For those coming by car, bike, bus, or yes, even airplane, you can find directions to the event site here.
