Attend the World’s Largest Solar Energy Event on Saturday, October 6th

2012 Illinois Solar Tour

 On October 6th, check out a unique opportunity to view renewable energy systems in action. The Illinois Solar Tour is a FREE self-guided, statewide open house that demonstrates how Illinois homes and businesses are using solar, wind, and geothermal to become energy independent.

Home and business owners with renewable energy installations will be providing tours on Saturday, October 6th from 10 am to 3 pm. Tour hosts will answer questions on how you can harness the power of the sun and wind to fuel your home and business. Learn how you can reduce your monthly utility bills, increase property values, and be part of the energy solution.

Business owners will be interested to see how businesses have reduced their bottom line. Visit a solar powered airport, a car wash that pays nothing for its hot water, and a farm that harvests the sun and wind along with its crops.

With over 80 sites throughout the state, there is a Solar Tour host site near you. Stop in to see how solar energy can brighten your day!
