About the National Solar Tour
For more than two decades, the American Solar Energy Society (ASES) has organized and presented the largest grassroots solar event in the U.S., the National Solar Tour. This year ASES is partnering with Solar United Neighbors in organizing the 2018 National Solar Tour.
The National Solar Tour is the largest grassroots solar, renewable energy, and sustainable living event in the nation. A collection of solar open houses and local solar tours around the country, the Tour occurs October 6 & 7 and the surrounding weekends. The Tour brings together solar supporters, home and business owners, and community members together to celebrate and help grow solar in their communities. A map at nationalsolartour.org provides dates, times and locations of all the tour sites.
