We're expanding our footprint and programming array with the addition of the Stevens SURE House on our lawn.
This storm-resistant, energy-efficient little beach house, designed by Stevens Institute of Technology students, won the 2015 Solar Decathlon sponsored by the US Department of Energy. It uses 90% less energy than a traditional home, and becomes a hub for emergency power to other buildings in the aftermath of a storm.
Groups that come to LSC to study renewable energy, tropical storm systems, erosion, and other related topics in our labs and classrooms will be able to cap off their visit with a tour of the SURE House to see resilient construction and clean energy system in action.
Stay tuned for more information about the opening of the SURE House.
