  • Now that the final house in the Solar Village at Missouri University of Science and Technology has been placed on its foundation, attention has been turned to landscaping. The idea is to make the village blend in with its neighborhood.
    The four-house experimental village is located on 10th Street across from the Gale Bullman Multi-Purpose Building in Rolla. In the past week, new sod and an underground sprinkler system have been installed.
    Missouri S&T students began building the solar houses in 2000 at a rate of one every two or three years. As the homes were finished, they were made available to students for rent.
