Episode 13: CORE @ Stanford Start.Home

Student name: Collin Lee (Electrical Engineering)
School: Stanford University

In this episode of Watt Trekker, we met with Collin Lee, an electrical engineering student at Stanford University, who describes the ‘Core’ concept integrated into their solar home aka Start.Home. All the heating/cooling, plumbing & power functions are incorporated into the Core for ease in prefabricating and applying to any house. Collin also worked on the computerized control systems of the house, and demonstrates several of these features. Themes include: prefabbed core unit, energy responsive art, color based energy feedback switches, controls, clerestories, and more.
