The Solar Homestead is Appalachian State University's entry in the U.S. Department of Energy Solar Decathlon 2011. Inspired by the pioneer spirit of the early settlers in the mountain region of North Carolina, we have designed a self-sustaining zero energy home.

Senators Support Decathlete's Movement
The effort to return the Solar Decathlon to the National Mall continues to move forward. Twelve U.S. Senators, including NC Senator Kay Hagan, have shown their support of the movement by signing a letter asking the Secretaries of the Interior and Energy to reinstate the competition on the National Mall. We would like to thank our Senators for supporting the competition and standing behind the decathletes. In order to support the National Mall as the location of the competition, please consider signing the petition and sending letters to Congress!
