Nearly 200 people participated in last weekend’s Solar Home Tour. Nearly all were from the Coastside. Dennis Paull reports, "There were too many folks and too much talking to hold the presentations in the same room as the vendor fair, so we moved the presentations outdoors. There were 7 presentations and up to 100 folks listening, depending on the hour."

The vendor fair ran from 1:00pm to 3:00pm. The home tour ran from 2:00pm to 4:30pm. "We had to shoo some folks from the vendor fair after it closed," said Paull. "They still wanted to talk to the vendors. And a few folks were still looking at solar enhanced homes at 4:30."

The weather cooperated fully with a cool but clear sky. And utility meters were spinning madly backwards on those homes with solar panels.


Is there any way to get a list of the vendors?  I am interested in learning more but I could not make this event.  Is there a list out there?
