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.

The Solar Homestead Celebrates Earth Week 2011

Members of the Solar Homestead Team featured with the OM on Sanford Mall for Earth Week.

Appalachian State University and the Solar Homestead Team participated in a week long Earth Day celebration. From organic smoothies to musical performances, ASU's campus took the week to observe and celebrate our planet. To participate, the Solar Homestead team took an OM to campus in order to display it to the student body. Members of the team were available for questions and answers about the Solar Homestead and the Solar Decathlon.

To those that took part in Earth Week, we would like to thank you for your support! 

Here's pictures of the OM in action!
