Orion Weather Station Goes to Washington
Press release date: Sep 21, 2009
Sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy, the Solar Decathlon brings together 20 teams from universities around the world to design and build zero-energy houses. The biannual event is in October with houses open for public viewing on October 9-13 and 15-18.
Virginia Tech's entry is called "lumenHAUS" - lumen for "the power of light" and "haus" being German for both house and home with a nod to the BauHaus movement.
The Refract House, a combined effort from Santa Clara University and California College of the Arts, is dedicated to "promoting the idea of living light" - harnessing sunlight, lightening the carbon footprint, and enlightening today's consumers.
Orion Weather Stations are manufactured in Hillsboro, Oregon by Columbia Weather Systems, Inc.
