President of the Solar Decathlon team, and Architecture student, Shengyin Xu, tells the Daily that the Solar Decathlon student "team has put in more hours per week during the summer than it did during the school year." The preliminary designs for the solar-powered home, which will cost about $350,000 were due in June and the project's Web site must be finished later this month. The team will unveil the final designs in September.
