The ASES National Solar Tour offers the opportunity to tour innovative green homes and buildings to see how you can use solar energy, energy efficiency, and other sustainable technologies to reduce monthly utility bills and help tackle climate change. Now in its 17th year, this event is coordinated nationally by ASES in collaboration with dozens of outstanding partner organizations. Most tours occur on Saturday, October 6, 2012.
In addition to highlighting available solar options, an increasing focus of the tour is on energy-saving techniques and sustainability through green building design, energy efficient appliances, and use of green materials during remodeling. Tours also provide helpful, real-world examples of costs and how to save money with federal, state, and local incentives.
Ultimately the tour inspires people across the nation to make sustainable energy choices that help lower costs, support energy independence, protect against power outages, and reduce carbon emissions. Be part of the renewable energy revolution.
