This past week, Living Light was featured on ESPNU as a part of their SEC Academic Special.
Living Light was the sole project chosen to represent the University of Tennessee in this feature. We should are so proud of the students and faculty who helped make this possible!
The segment will re-air on January 21, but we have been given access to the video content for use and viewing. Check out the video:
Living Light is a functioning energy-efficient, solar-powered house that competed in the 2011 U.S. Department of Energy Solar Decathlon on the Mall in Washington, D.C.
The house placed eighth overall in the competition, and earned commendable, high-standing marks in the fields of architecture, energy-efficient appliances, and engineering.It also tied for first place in the Energy Balance Contest, garnering perfect marks for achieving a net-zero energy balance throughout the competition.
Living Light since its return from the Solar Decathlon has transformed into a traveling educational exhibition called the Tennessee Tour. The mobile classroom seeks to inform people about the values and technologies of sustainable building and design.
