Solar Decathlon 2013 and the winner is...

Austria! This beautiful solar home has won this years U.S. Dept. of Energy Solar Decathlon. And rightly so, with special attention to our climate here in Southern California this home boosts Native California plants as well as a plethera of sustainable building materials. The home encourages indoor/outdoor living with retractable glass walls and exterior screens and curtains to create “layers of shade and privacy”.
