The annual grassroots solar event will take place virtually and in neighborhoods nationwide the weekend of October 3-4, 2020. The National Solar Tour will closely monitor and follow the CDC guidelines for the Tour. This means the Tour may be outside only, inside with masks and practicing social distancing or completely virtual. Regardless, the National Solar Tour will empower people across the country to learn about solar technology and the process of going solar from their friends and neighbors.
“The National Solar Tour inspires people across the country to make sustainable energy choices,” said Carly Rixham, ASES executive director. “Going solar allows people to reduce costs, support energy independence and reduce carbon emissions.”
This year’s tour will have a goal of engaging over 50,000 people attending and hosting solar home tours.
“Solar brings people together,” said Anya Schoolman, Solar United Neighbors executive director. “We’re excited to partner with ASES to expand the reach of this great opportunity for folks to learn about solar from their neighbors.”
Solar advocates are encouraged to organize local solar tours in their neighborhoods. Open houses can feature solar, other renewable energy and energy efficiency technologies. Local organizers and solar homeowners interested in hosting a solar open house can sign up to participate by July 31 at this link.
