The team is extraordinarily excited to see the Chameleon House transition from blueprints and specifications into an actual building. We have already assembled a winning team of students, advisers and sponsors, but experience has taught us that we can never have enough help. The great things we do would not be possible without donations from generous people. Please consider donating to the team today.

Live Sustainably


All of our homes are built and furnished with as many sustainable products as possible. The tenants of our Solar Village are chosen due to their dedication to live a sustainable lifestyle.


Build Intelligently


The Solar House Team designs and builds each home so that it may regulate its environment using passive solar techniques as often as possible. This includes anything from temperature to lighting and more!


Generate Renewably


Each house employs solar panels to produce abundant energy for the home as well as a solar thermal system to produce hot water for the radiant heating floor system and also for domestic hot water.

As you watch, you will quickly notice that much of the work done on the house is done by the students on the Solar House Team. These countless hours spent constructing the house are hours set aside from classes, homework, athletics, and other extracurricular activities associated with being a college student.
