Stanford Solar Decathlon House

Since the open house tours of the 2013 Stanford Solar Decathlon Start.Home, it has become more than a demonstration project; it is now home to the Jasper Ridge resident ranger and his family. They will provide further testing of the SSDH’s sustainability and comfort. While they are living there, tours of the SSDH will not be part of our regular tour program. It will be available for touring only under special arrangement. In a few years, the the SSDH will become a residence for visiting researchers and scholars working in the preserve.
