Help the CU team purchase its solar array through the Buy-A-Solar-Cell program!
The CU team needs $30,000 to purchase the 7.5 kW solar array for their competition home. While CU is receiving a discount on the panels from Astropower (logo) much help is still needed! This Buy-A-Solar-Cell program allows the public to contribute to the project by purchasing a solar cell in the photovoltaic array for a minimum of $20.
Each solar cell helps generate the electricity needed to run all of the standard appliances and conditioning equipment for the home as well as provide power for an electric car. The competition will be held without a backup power source so purchasing the maximum amount of photovoltaic panels that the roof will hold is crucial.
If you would like to have your own cell on the CU Solar Decathlon home, there are several still available! To purchase a cell, mail a check made payable to CU Foundation along with your contact information to our mailing address (note this is link to contact us page) or contact us with any questions.
Thank you to the supporters of the Buy-A-Solar-Cell program:
