2020 CHALLENGE OVERVIEW
Using their surrounding area, teams are challenged to design an energy upgrade for a facility that provides community services to others. Examples would include a homeless shelter, food pantry, daycare center, library, house of worship, etc.
Teams are required to prepare a proposal showing how their chosen facility can decrease its energy consumption by incorporating energy saving measures and distributed energy resources.
