Norwich celebrates completion of solar house

Posted: Updated:
NORTHFIELD, Vt. -

Norwich University is holding a party Friday afternoon to celebrate a send-off for a solar house.

In December, we introduced you to the team creating a cost-effective, energy-efficient solar-powered house for a U.S. Department of Energy competition.

School officials say it can maintain an inside temperature of 70 degrees when it's 20 below outside and is affordable for someone earning $36,000 a year.

It will now be disassembled and loaded onto a truck bound for judging in California. Norwich is one of just 20 college teams competing in that contest.
