Welcome to Watt Trekker! The Watt Trekker web-based video series follows two teenage sisters as they search for promising energy solutions for the future. In this inaugural series, Watt Trekker turns its sights on the Solar Decathlon, a college-based competition to design & build super-efficient, innovative, solar-powered homes. Nineteen teams from around the world came together in Southern California in October 2013 to assemble their homes into a solar powered village. We visited with teams to learn about solar home features and the many diverse disciplines(and thus careers) that are needed to build a solar home.
