During a visit up to Middlebury last month, we were thrilled to meet up with alumna Katie Romanov (F05) and to hear about her experience working on Middlebury’s Solar Decathlon team.  Middlebury is competing in the 2011 Solar Decathlon competition, a biennial competition sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy that challenges collegiate teams to build solar-powered houses featuring cost-effective, energy-efficient construction and incorporating energy-saving appliances and renewable energy systems.  Katie is serving the Middlebury team as the Communications and Outreach Lead.  Check out this video about Middlebury’s participation, and see Katie at minute 1:35!
