Sac State students think small for Tiny House Competition
Sacramento State is one of 12 California universities entered in SMUD’s inaugural Tiny House Competition, to be held in October 2016 on the Sac State campus.
The tiny house movement is all about living “green” in 400 square feet or less, and SMUD (Sacramento Municipal Utility District) is capitalizing on the smart-living trend by challenging collegiate teams from throughout the state to design and build small, net-zero energy homes on wheels.
“We created the Tiny House Competition to give students a chance to explore new areas of science and technology in a very hands-on way,” says Brent Sloan, manager of SMUD’s Community Solar program. “Plus, students get to be a part of a team and have a lot of fun while they learn.”
