The PSEG Foundation has granted Stevens Institute of Technology $250,000 towards the completion of the University’s Solar Decathlon entry, SURE HOUSE. The SURE (SUstainable and REsilient) HOUSE is Stevens’ entry into the U.S. Department of Energy’s Solar Decathlon competition and represents the schools’ vision of a sustainable and resilient home for the areas at greatest risk during extreme weather. The student-built, net-zero, solar-powered home is currently being built in Hoboken, New Jersey and will soon be shipped to Irvine, California for entry into the competition.
PSEG’s partnership with Stevens Institute of Technology is aligned with the company’s corporate citizenship priorities which include collaborating with organizations that promote environmental stewardship and sustainability initiatives and improving learning and educational opportunities in areas of STEM. Funds from the PSEG Foundation grant are being used in part to fund the SURE HOUSE construction as well as entry into the Solar Decathlon.
