We warned you it was happening, and now the news is out: The 2013 Solar Decathlon, which has taken place in D.C. since its inception a decade ago, is off to the Orange County Great Park in Irvine, California. At least the bright young things from Catholic University, George Washington University, and American University—-who’ve made it into the competition as Team Capitol D.C.—-will have a nice little vacation.
