BeauSoleil Rising

Solar Decathlon Update: Every two years 20 university teams are chosen, based on proposals, to design an all-solar home and assemble it on the National Mall in Washington DC for public viewing and judging. Check back each Wednesday as the NAV Blog reports on the process of the design and construction of BeauSoleil, the University of Louisiana at Lafayette's entry. For more info about the project, visit their website. And check out a short film about the project.

Exciting News: The BeauSoleil Solar Home is finished!

Not quite. But an photo-realistic rendering on display at the recent open house gives us a good idea of things to come. Photos of the event were supplied by Collin Bercier of Lousiana Solar Solutions who is contributing solar equipment and solar intelligence to the project.

Update: Bryan Marks produced the BeauSoleil computer rendering above.
