The rise in popularity of alternative fuel and energy technologies has created newfound interest in solar technology. Centering on the creation of alternative power and possible integration into the current U.S. energy grid, scientists, engineers, and designers are discovering new ways to integrate solar into every day products for the commercial and the residential markets. Competitions like the annual Solar Decathlon sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) continue to encourage the average citizen that solar is beneficial in real world applications.
