About Us

We are recruiting volunteers for the U.S. Department of Energy Solar Decathlon

2011. The event takes place on the National Mall, West Potomac Park in

Washington, D.C., and will be open to the public Sept. 23 – Oct 2.

The U.S. Department of Energy Solar Decathlon challenges 20 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. Open to the public free of charge,

the Solar Decathlon enables visitors to tour the houses, gather ideas to use in

their own homes, and learn how energy-saving features can help them save

money today.

We are recruiting greeters, docents, runners, solar experts, registration

assistants, special event and walking route assistants, and others. There is a job

for everyone!

Visit the Solar Decathlon web site to find out more about volunteering or to

register: http://www.solardecathlon.gov/volunteers.html

The shift schedule will be announced early August and all registered volunteers

will be informed by email when shifts are ready for selection.

We hope you will join us!

Many Thanks!
