These are the students in ENERGY 3240: Fundamentals of Energy Sources class at the Univ. of Wisconsin - Platteville. About 39 students and professors chose our home to tour and discuss alternative energy sources with my husband. I took pictures, hahahaha! Everyone who knows me, knows I can't stand still w/o talking, so we had a blast with everyone. Lots of questions and we even got in a few questions of the group!
It was the perfect day for solar usage too. I baked up chocolate chip cookies and a rhubarb cake in the morning and presented the cookies to the students and profs. Big hit there! Ran out of cookies. So I hid the rhubarb cake - no seriously I did not do that (hide the cake)!
Under observation were our solar oven; solar cooker; 2 solar water heaters; electric bikes; passive solar energy heating system of the south side of our home, and a few more items including our entire earth berm home. I cannot tell them how much I appreciated their kindness and wonderful attention to my husband's display. Seems like there wasn't enough time for everything, even tho they overstayed their allowed time. From here they left to look at biomass at the coal power plant in Cassville.
