About the ASES National Solar Tour
The American Solar Energy Society National Solar Tour is the world's largest
grassroots solar event. This event offers participants the opportunity to tour
homes and buildings to see how neighbors are using solar energy, energy
efficiency, and other sustainable technologies to reduce their monthly utility
bills and help tackle climate change.
Last year close to 140,000 attendees visited some 5,000 buildings in 3,000
participating communities. Now in its 14th year, this event is coordinated
nationally by the nonprofit American Solar Energy Society. It takes place
annually during the first Saturday in October in conjunction with National
Energy Awareness Month.
An increasing focus of the tour is on energy-saving techniques and
sustainability through 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
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. We invite you to join the renewable
energy revolution by participating in the ASES National Solar Tour.
