Your very own solar house for only $100K

One item up for sale at Aggie Surplus is just a bit larger than the typical office furniture and computers it usually sells: The home designed and built by students for the 2015 U.S. Department of Energy Solar Decathlon. The home, which won first place in the "affordability" category, is currently sitting on a trailer waiting for a permanent home.

"Not only is it beautiful but it also comes furnished and has solar power," Aggie Surplus said in an email newsletter. "Asking price is $100,000.00. Available for public purchase now."
