MPR notes lack of buyers for ICON solar house

Anissa Stocks, writing for Minnesota Public Radio (MPR), reports that college students have spent months trying to sell their prize-winning entry in the 2009 Solar Decathlon. The 550 square-foot house is currently on display as part of the Bell Museum's Sustainable Shelter -- Dwelling Within the Forces of Nature exhibition which runs through May 15, 2011. Stocks quotes Dan Handeen (Center for Sustainable Building Research and assistant project manager for the project) as saying, "It'd be a waste of [the team's] talent, effort, and ingenuity if it wasn't sold or on display."
