The 21st Annual American Solar Energy Society (ASES) National Solar Tour will be held October 2016 in neighborhoods across the US. Attending the 2016 National Solar Tour will allow communities across the country the opportunity to see new and innovative technologies locally that benefit the environment on a global level. Visiting homes on the tour is a way to have a voice in how Americans get their energy, and allows attendees 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.
The tour continues 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.
Sponsored by Enphase Energy, a global technology company, 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 October in conjunction with National Energy Awareness Month.
