About The National Solar Tour
The National Solar Tour is held on the first Saturday of each October, National Energy Awareness Month. Tours are held September through November. The National Solar Tour highlights energy efficiency and renewable energy technologies and methods that are working and available right now, in real places for real people. These sustainable energy choices help the owners reduce operating costs and improve comfort and health while investing in local communities. Tours show attendees how home and building owners provide for their power needs from the sun, wind and other renewable sources. An increasing focus of tours is on saving energy through building design, energy-efficient appliances and building materials. Tour guests learn how sustainable energy choices protect against power outages, support energy independence and reduce carbon emissions and impacts on the environment. Many tours provide information on utility, state, and federal incentives for the installation of energy efficiency and renewable energy solutions. Tours are organized through independent groups including ASES chapters, state energy offices, environmental and conservation groups, solar businesses and volunteers.
