Are you a proud owner of solar on your home or business? Become a part of our community of energy innovators by participating in the Solar Tour, coming up on September 22nd!
If you are the owner of a solar installation, you're on the forefront of the energy revolution. Now it's time to get your neighbors on board! Show your community how solar works - how it affects your fossil fuel usage AND your electricity bill - by being a part of of the Illinois Solar Energy Association's Solar Tour!
The Tour is a free public open house: an opportunity to show off your solar array to your neighbors and get your community involved and interested in investing in renewable energy. It's also a national event: ISEA's Solar Tour is part of the American Solar Energy Society's National Solar Tour event, "the largest grassroots solar event in history." More than 160,000 participants will visit some 5,500 buildings in 3,200 communities across the US on tour day. Being part of this national event is a great way to show your support for renewable energy, and encourage others to follow in your footsteps.
Illinois prides itself on traditionally hosting one of the largest solar tours in the country! Your participation in the event will make this year even more of a success.
