NanaWall Systems Featured in Three Homes at Solar Decathlon

October 27, 2015

NanaWall Systems is featured in three homes within the 2015 U.S. Department of Energy Solar Decathlon, which challenges collegiate teams to design, build and operate solar-powered houses that are cost-effective, energy-efficient and attractive. Each home incorporates NanaWall opening glass wall systems in order to maximize the connection between the home and the outdoors while achieving energy efficiency, durability and high structural ratings. 

“NanaWall Systems has been utilized in over a dozen Solar Decathlon homes since 2005, providing engineered solutions to the visions of cutting edge building technology without sacrificing aesthetics,” said NanaWall Systems CEO Ebrahim Nana. “We are proud to participate in this important competition that inspires clean energy for residential construction.”

The three Solar Decathlon teams that have incorporated NanaWall Systems into their projects include the Alf House: State University of New York at Alfred College of Technology and Alfred University (SL60 four-panel system and SL60 three-panel system), INhouse: California Polytechnic State University (SL60 five-panel system) and NexusHaus: University of Texas and the Technische Universität München (three SL60 three-panel systems). 

“With the help of NanaWall Systems, Solar Cal Poly was able to nearly double our living space by opening up 15 feet of the southern module,” said Solar Cal Poly Co-Project Manager Alyssa Parr. “We can make a 1,000-sq.-ft. home feel more like 1,500 sq. ft.”
