Following the lead of a couple of popular reality TV programs, Sacramento Municipal Utility District(SMUD) recently held a tiny house competition. Teams from colleges around the state competed to build net-zero tiny solar-powered houses. The competition was held at Consumnes River College in Sacramento, California.
First prize went to the team from Santa Clara University. Their entry was a beautiful piece of craftsmanship with some impressive features for a tiny home. All, of course, powered by solar energy.
In order to determine who could be best suited to build the tiny houses of the future, the Sacramento Municipal Utility District held a contest for California colleges to … Santa Clara’s roof and solar panels. Photo: Joanne H. California colleges battle it out in tiny house competition
