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.

Introducing: Beard Blog #1
Just like our house concept, traditional Appalachian homesteading, our guys on the team are sticking with a regional tradition as well... Appalachian men have grown beards for centuries as a means to conserve precious time and energy, and in this last big push our guys have given up shaving too.
Check out some of our accomplished leaders and team members. Hope you enjoy this as much as we do!!
Not only do these guys have dedication to the Solar Homestead,
they have dedication to growing their awesome beards!
