Team NJ house opens on DC Mall following week of round-the-clock work
Date:9/28/2011

Following a week of tumultuous sleepless nights and round-the-clock construction, Team NJ's entry in the prestigious bi-annual U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Solar Decathlon 2011 has opened on the National Mall's West Potomac Park in Washington, DC. (To view the finished house please visit: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9ePzzQ-bubk&feature=player_embedded .)

ENJoy: A Generation House, has been more than a two-year collaborative effort to design, build, and operate solar-powered homes that are cost-effective, energy-efficient, and attractive. More than a dozen-plus graduate and undergraduate students from NJIT's College of Architecture and Design (COAD) and Rutgers-The State University of New Jersey have labored on the project.

The house is now in a neck-and-neck competition since Sept. 22, 2011 for best in show. The grand prize winner will be announced Oct. 1, 2011. Eighteen other built entries, hailing from as far away as New Zealand and China, are competing in this remarkable futuristic display of what are arguably the best in the world. The winner will be the one with the highest score after the following ten contests in architecture (juried); market appeal (juried); engineering (juried); communications (juried); affordability (juried); comfort zone (measured); hot water (measured); appliances (measured); home entertainment (measured and juried); and energy balance contest (measured).

The competition is open to the public free of charge through Oct. 2, 2011. Visitors are invited to tour the houses in person or in cyberspace to gather ideas to use in their own homes. Public viewing hours are weekdays 10 a.m.-2 p.m. and weekends 10 a.m.-5:30 p.m. Learn more at: http://www.solardecathlon.gov/faqs.html#designs
