The 15th annual Solar Tour organized by the American Solar Energy Society is ready to kick-off tomorrow morning and promises to be by far, the largest ever of its kind. Nearly 650 grass root tours from across all fifty states, Mexico, and the Virgin Islands will be participating this year, so you are likely to find one near you. But the tour is not just about all things solar, they will also highlight green building, electric cars, and some happening parties. The tour also offers a chance to meet the proud owners, installers, and advocates of numerous sustainable energy projects and buildings.
The tours will provide a vast and broad collection of applied renewable technology – the largest university solar array in the country at Colorado State University, a huge downtown party in Huston, and a tour of Alaskan projects that you can only get to by plane are just a sample of the thousands of sites that will open their doors this Saturday. Jump ahead for the slideshow to see more locations across the nation!
