As we close in on the kick-off of the Solar Decathlon [1]next week, we’ve been profiling all of this year’s ultra-efficient homes [2] as they prepare to take the Washington Mall by storm. We’ve already showcased projects from around the country – and the world – and we just had a chance to take an exclusive first look at the one entry being built right in our own backyard! The City College of New York [3] invited us for a sneak peek of their Solar Roofpod [4], which is designed specifically to be sited on NYC’s sun-soaked rooftops. Hit jump to check out this spectacular sun-powered home!
