From the press release:

Every two years, the U.S. Department of Energy Solar Decathlon challenges collegiate teams to design, build, and operate solar-powered houses that are cost-effective, energy-efficient, and attractive. The winner of the competition is the team that best blends affordability, consumer appeal, and design excellence with optimal energy production and maximum efficiency. 2013 Solar Decathlon competition is under way.

This year, the Westcott House is partnering with one of the participating teams to bring the Solar House to our site!
 
Following the competition in October, Norwich University will donate the Delta T90 house to be displayed on the site adjacent to the Westcott House in Springfield, Ohio, to serve as a learning lab. The house will also offer programming opportunities such as professional development workshops, youth programs and special demonstrations to promote green living and clean energy technologies.
 
This project has been recognized by the Ohio Arts Council with the award of a highly competitive grant "Creative Economy." We also received a "Museums for America" grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services. IMLS selected our project from as one of 152 programs nationwide (out of 470 applications received).
