Iowa State’s PrISUm solar car team will present Hyperion, its newest solar car on Sunday, June 3.

The presentation will be at the Solar House at 1714 Southwest College Ave. in Ankeny, Iowa.

The Solar House is Iowa’s first net zero home. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, a net zero home is a home that “uses about 60 to 70 percent less energy than a conventional home, with the balance of its energy needs supplied by renewable technologies. Essentially, it is a home that sustains itself — energywise.”

The car will be there from 1 to 4 p.m. This will be PrISUm’s first time working with the net zero house.
