Though it was a soggy day, the Solar House Team was delighted to see that the number of people who turned out to participate in the 2005 Maryland Day and learn more about solar energy.
Members of the team spent the day at the solar house table answering the seemingly limitless questions people had about the Solar Decathlon, solar energy, the team car and a solar powered water pump.
The afternoon concluded with the drawing for an autographed Gary Williams basketball that raised money for the house.
The team hopes that the event increased awareness about the uses of solar power and that they will see everyone who visited again at the Decathlon in October.
