    Please consider attending this great event:

    The American Solar Energy Society (ASES) will hold its 19th annual National Solar Tour, across the country on October 4-5, 2014. Homeowners and businesses in neighborhoods across the country opened their doors and to show what they’ve done to slash utility bills and help cut pollution from electric generating plants.

    The ASES National Solar Tour is the largest grassroots solar event in the nation, involving about 150,000 participants and 5,000 solar-energy sites nationwide.

    It offers the opportunity to informally tour innovative green homes and buildings, and see how solar energy can be used efficiently. The tour hopes to inspire people across the nation to make sustainable energy choices that reduce costs, support energy independence, protect against power outages, and reduce carbon emissions.

    This is a chance to see affordable and practical technologies, in your neighborhood, that benefit the environment and are part of the solution to our nation’s energy problems. If you are considering solar energy, please consider visiting a business or resident participating in the National Solar Tour to learn more.

    If you’re a tour organizer, or would like to be, or have a high-efficiency home or business you’d like to showcase — then mark your calendar now for the first weekend of October. That’s when thousands of people will open their homes and offices across the country, to show their neighbors what distributed power and efficient design can do to reduce utility bills and clean up the Earth’s atmosphere.

    This event is coordinated nationally by the nonprofit American Solar Energy Society in collaboration with dozens of outstanding partner organizations. It takes place annually during the first Saturday in October in conjunction with National Energy Awareness Month.

    I signed my home up to be part of the tour. Our 7.1 KW system has covered 95% of our usage INCLUDING about 700 miles of driving a month.
