New Dawn for Ohio State Solar Education & Outreach

Tucked away off Lane Avenue sits the enCORE solar-powered house at The Ohio State University. Today, the property remains rural enough to forget it’s surrounded by rush hour traffic, towering buildings and high rise student accommodations on campus.
