Santa clara university’s revolve house team won the inaugural smud tiny house competition

Santa Clara University’s rEvolve House team won the inaugural SMUD Tiny House Competition in Sacramento on Oct. 15. Eight other California college teams also competed to design and build a net-zero-energy use home 400 square feet or less. The team built a 238-square-foot rotating rEvolve house that is set on a trailer connected to a COLOSSUN solar tracking ring that allows the entire house to revolve as the sun moves across the sky, improving the home’s solar efficiency by 30 percent. Campus and community members are invited to come see the house in person and meet the students who spent two years on this project at an Open House on Wednesday, Nov. 2 from 3-7 p.m. The event will take place on Alviso Street next to the de Saisset Museum. Guided tours, light refreshments, and live music will be available.

The other teams that competed in the competition were University of California, Berkeley; California State University, Chico; California State University, Fresno; Cosumnes River College; College of the Sequoias; Laney College; Sacramento State University; and San Jose City College.
