Do remember to check out theThe Solar Decathlon in October at National Mall in Washington, D.C. This is the detail of the event.

In October, the teams transport their solar houses to the National Mall in Washington, D.C., where they form a solar village. The teams compete in 10 contests to determine an overall winner. Using only energy from the sun, the teams generate enough electricity to run a modern household.
