Students and faculty at the University of Tennessee Knoxville [1] have created a zero energy house [2] that not only teaches the students around campus about sustainable design, but also reaches a wider audience in the surrounding community. The site really comes alive on college game days, when the campus is not just populated with UT’s 20,000 student population but also by 100,000-plus residents from the state of Tennessee and surrounding areas. This is a great chance for both communities to experience the green design concept firsthand.
