Team Alberta is "the first-ever all western Canadian team to be selected to compete in the prestigious international Solar Decathlon competition."

Their entry, SolAbode, is a collaborative effort between:

  • University of Calgary
  • SAIT Polytechnic
  • Mount Royal College
  • Alberta College of Art + Design.

According to a February newsletter:

Our house is designed to sit on a rolling rail system. This means we won't have to use a crane on the Washington Mall. Our modules (four in all) will be unloaded at one end of the rails, rolled to the next module and then prepped for connecting before being linked in place.

Worth a look:

Interesting to note:

[SolAbode] will be showcased in Vancouver during the 2010 Olympic Winter Games.
