WHY BECOME A SPONSOR?

As a sponsor you will be supporting a group of highly motivated students, who are learning, exploring, creating, testing, and constructing the systems in the home. This competition is not only a learning experience for the students actively involved, but is also an opportunity for everyone to learn about the innovations in the current industry.

The U.S. Department of Energy Solar Decathlon is an award-winning program that challenges collegiate teams to design, build, and operate solar-powered houses that are cost-effective, energy-efficient, and attractive. The winner of the competition is the team that best blends affordability, consumer appeal, and design excellence with optimal energy production and maximum efficiency.

Open to the public free of charge, visitors can tour the houses, gather ideas to use in their own homes, and learn how energy-saving features can help them save money today. The competition will occur over several weeks, with construction beginning on September 28, 2017. A target of 90,000 visitors will attend over nine days of the public event, October 5–9, 2017, and October 12–15, 2017.
