    What you call “excess energy” is perfect for the emerging electric car market. Quick change car (and bike) batteries that can now be solar charged will easily use this energy. The judges would be wise to give additional consideration for this feature.

    The SIPs panels they use in this project is Magnesium Oxide Boards sandwiching EPS foam. This is a new product in the SIPs world. It is fireproof and mold proof. A little harder to work with but very good alternative to the standard OSB SIPs. I think this is one of the 4 student-built projects. They did an awesome job with it.
