Sunny Southern California is set to break out the photovoltaic panels as the U.S. Department of Energy prepares to host the 2013 Solar Decathlon in Orange County, CA. This marks the first time in history that the event will be held outside of Washington, D.C. Twenty collegiate teams will design and build solar-powered homes at the Orange County Great Park from October 3-13 – and each project will be striving to score the highest marks in efficiency, consumer appeal and architectural excellence. In preparation for the event, representatives from the 20 teams visited Orange County this week to take part in workshops and briefings for the competition.
