>>Male 1: We are team Solar Nest
at Sacramento State. Our house is called the Reflect Home.
When I look at our design, I see elegance, just beauty, and, yet, simplicity,
and I feel that it really encapsulates the spirt of Sacramento.>>Female: It’s built mainly to attract young
families looking to purchase a house.
These are families who usually work in the central city.
They’re looking at neighborhoods that surround the central city.>>Male 2: Everyone typically thinks of solar
panels as just a big sheet you put on the roof
or you can maybe make overhang. Technologies now, they’re incorporating solar
panels into windows, and we’re using that technology in the railing
around the deck and as a skylight over the patio.
You get light through as a skylight, but you’re also generating electricity at
the same time. So, you could have a skyscraper,
and they could just use all those windows, and you could have a net-zero skyscraper.>>Team: Team Solar Nest!
