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.

Over a year ago, 3M partnered with the Solar Homestead and provided the team with various products for the home that include safety equipment, LED lighting, and reflective films. 

Since the conception of 3M, the company has focused on its sustainability efforts through conservation and innovation that resulted in the company's reduction of greenhouse gas emissions by two-thirds worldwide from 1990-2010.

The Solar Homestead is proud to announce 3M as a valued sponsor in this monumental project.
