EMPOWERHOUSE Mission

EMPOWERHOUSE is a community-based approach to sustainable urban development showcasing the design of two affordable solar powered homes and a neighborhood learning garden.

Students from across The New School and Stevens Institute of Technology came together to compete in the U.S. Department of Energy 2011 Solar Decathlon and to bring the Empowerhouse beyond the National Mall, to the Washington D.C. neighborhood of Deanwood.
