I was excited to be in attendance last Tuesday night for Boone Green Drinks and BREC's update on The Solar Homestead in Boone, NC. This event was the second event focused on The Solar Homestead for Boone Green Drinks and saw an incredible amount of progress between events. This event is the beginning of a fall series for the Blue Ridge Entrepreneurial Council (BREC) focused on clean energy in WNC.
A brief background on The Solar Homestead: The Solar Homestead is Appalachian State University's entry in the U.S. Department of Energy Solar Decathlon 2011.They are the only NC team out of an array international entries. They were one of 20 teams accepted with close to 50 original entries. They will be competing in Washington DC on the National Mall from September 23rd through October 2nd.
