This Weekend: National Solar Tour

This Weekend: National Solar Tour

Do you like our green tours, but wish you could see something in person? This weekend is your opportunity to see a ton of green homes: the ASES National Solar Tour is the world's largest grassroots solar event and is a great chance to see how your neighbors are using solar energy and green building techniques in their homes...

If you've been thinking about adding a solar energy system to your home or just want to know what a home with solar panels, geothermal heating or wind turbines looks like, you can visit any of the hundreds of homes and buildings participating. In addition to highlighting solar options available, another focus of the tour is on energy-saving techniques through building design, energy efficient appliances and use of green materials during construction.

The self-guided 2009 National Solar Tour is this Saturday. To locate a tour near you, visit the ASES National Solar Tour website.
