For those of you who won't have the opportunity to see these homes in person on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., from Sept. 23-Oct. 2, we've decided to gather up all the video walk-throughs of this year's entries in the Department of Energy's Solar Decathlon.

All of these homes are extremely energy efficient and, of course, solar-powered. There are more than 20 entries in this year's solar decathlon, and we'll be bringing you walk-throughs of every entry.
