Anybody seen these, familiar with the contest?

http://www.eere.energy.gov/solar_decathlon/

University competition, 20 or so homes designed and built by students, all running off the grid, all of them transported to the National Mall and built up as a village. Open to the public beginning today. I'm going to try and check them out tomorrow.

Weather should be a good test - we haven't had any real rain for close to two months, but it's raining now and in the forecast for most of the next 5 days.

I saw that on TV last month, can't remember what channel. Looks very interesting, If I was closer I would go check them out. Thanks for the link.
