Interlock House Data presented at Iowa Ideas Conference

A 'green' building is a building that, in its design, construction or operation, reduces or eliminates negative impacts, and can create positive impacts on our climate and natural environment. Green buildings preserve precious natural resources and improve our quality of life. To what level of investment will a green building have positive return on a community?

The Interlock House, Iowa State University's 2009 entry into the US DOE Solar Decathlon has been monitored for multiple years and shows the feasibility to built with low impact on the environment.
