National Solar Tour Day – October 6, 2007


Ladies and Gentlemen, it’s that time again:  October 6, 2007 – The National Solar Tour.  The ASES National Solar Tour is the largest tour of sustainable energy technology for buildings in the U.S.  Now in its 12th year, some 100,000 people across the nation will see how neighbors are using clean sources of energy to save on energy bills and protect the environment.  Through a series of open-houses and informative tours, participants learn about renewable energy options, energy efficient design, real-world costs, current rebates available, and other valuable insights. 

Tours are being organized in dang near every state, so if you have the interest, there’s probably a place you can go.  Here’s the main page to find a tour near you.  Image Credit: Sunpower.

    Thanks, Preston!

    I’ve recently come to think that events like the Solar Tour are quite important in promoting renewable energy and efficiency technologies, because people are much more likely to adopt things that they see others using.

    And it brings the issue home, right in your backyard: “People are doing this in my city? Wow! Maybe we ought to look into this more seriously…” We can all learn from the experience of others when it comes to solar … this is an excellent national event.
