Volunteers needed for the upcoming U.S. Department of Energy Solar Decathlon 2017 - Denver, Co.

Please help us spread the word to your colleagues and friends in Denver, Co!

The U.S. Department of Energy Solar Decathlon is a collegiate competition of 10 contests that challenge student teams to design and build full-size, energy-efficient, solar-powered houses. The winner most successfully blends design excellence, smart energy strategies, innovation, and market potential.

Free to visitors, October 5 – 9 and 12 – 15, 2017, at the 61st & Peña station on the University of Colorado A line commuter rail near Denver International Airport, the event features student teams providing free public tours of their solar powered, energy- and water efficient houses featuring cutting-edge technologies; a sustainability expo; professional, and consumer and middle school education events.

Solar Decathlon is much more than a collegiate competition. It’s an intensive learning opportunity for consumers and homeowners as they experience the latest technologies and materials in energy-efficient design, clean energy technologies, smart home solutions, water conservation measures, electric vehicles, and sustainable buildings. And, in its 2017 location within the new development at the 61st & Peña Station commuter rail stop near Denver International Airport, Solar Decathlon encourages competitors and visitors to think about new ways of combining commercial and residential uses, and mass transit, to create attractive spaces that enable residents to live, work, and play in one place.

Volunteers work alongside Solar Decathlon organizers serving as a greeter, docent, visitor liaison, education day mentors and more. 

Keep an eye on the Solar Decathlon website  for updates to the event, and specifically the Solar Decathlon Volunteers page for more information about types of volunteer roles and a link to register.

Also, we are also looking for interns for the Solar Decathlon Communications and Volunteer Departments. If you know of anyone interested, please have them email volunteers@confluencec.com.

Thank you!
