The American Solar Energy Society's 
National Solar Tour 2008
comes to Louisiana October 4

The National Solar Tour of Homes came to Louisiana this past Saturday, October 4.  LSES was the Louisiana host for homes and businesses across the state.  We had homes open in Baton Rouge, Opelousas, Covington, Abita Springs, New Orleans, and Lafayette.  There were three businesses on the tour; Dryades YMCA in New Orleans, The Island Country Club in Plaquemine, and St. Margaret Catholic School in Lake Charles.  People from across the state came to these homes and businesses to see how solar works for real people in real places, and to learn more about solar energy and how it can help improve our environment, lower utility bills, and so much more!
Overall, the majority of people that came out were very interested in ways they can be more energy efficient to improve the quality of life, and to use what was given to us for free, the SUN!
We all had a great time and are very thankful to everyone that opened their doors to other curious solar enthusiasts.  We also thank everyone that made the time to come out to these homes and businesses!
If you weren't able to make the tour, LSES will be holding a spring tour for everyone that missed this tour.  For more information you can email us at
