The U.S. Department of Energy Solar Decathlon is a program that aims to help the visiting public learn about the benefits of applying sustainable, energy efficient, and cost-saving features to their own homes. Collegiate teams of university students compete in various contests, including architecture, engineering, energy balance, and market appeal.

Winners of the EmPower Solar Student Competition will attend the DEO decathlon from Thursday, October 10 to Sunday, October 13, 2013.
This event will showcase 20 highly efficient, solar-powered houses in a specially constructed solar village at the Orange County Great Park.
TMBA is an engineering-driven firm. We were looking for a highly technical installation with a quality of support that would assure us that the system would produce value over an extended period of time. In our opinion, EmPower was the only bidder that really met that requirement.Ted Bier
