NEW YORK — The American Solar Energy Society (ASES) is proud to announce that the largest annual grassroots solar event in the nation will be taking place at the beginning of next month – October 4-5, 2014. Attending the tour will allow communities across the country the opportunity to see new and innovative technologies locally that will benefit the environment on a global level. Americans have a voice in how they get their energy. Visiting homes on the tour will allow visitors to learn, engage and be a part of the solution to current energy challenges.
The ASES National Solar Tour is the largest grassroots solar event in the nation, involving over 150,000 participants and 5,000 solar-energy sites nationwide.
It offers the opportunity to informally tour innovative green homes and buildings, and see affordable and practical technologies in local neighborhoods, that benefit the environment and are part of the solution to the nation’s energy challenges. The tour hopes to continue 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.
Those interested in solar energy should please consider visiting a business or resident participating in the National Solar Tour to learn more.
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.
