The Illinois Solar Energy Association (ISEA) proudly presents the Solar House, a tiny house on a trailer which provides a miniature example of a life sized solar powered residence. As part of the 2012 Green Living and Learning Tour on Saturday September 29th, the Solar House will be on display at the corner of Lake and Forest, from 11 am – 4 pm, and it will finish the day featured at the closing event at Field Park. The Solar House exhibit is FREE and open to the public.
The ISEA recently took the Solar House to the Illinois State Fair, where thousands of people had the opportunity to learn more about solar energy. The house is for exterior viewing only, and has both photovoltaics and solar thermal installed. The idea of solar powered energy is new to most of us, so Green Community Connections is excited to make the Solar House available to local residents. Representatives from the ISEA will be onsite with the exhibit to provide information and answer any questions you have on the house and solar energy.
To learn even more about what the sun can do for you, join the one or both of the tours which highlight home solar installations that are part of the Green Living & Learning Tour on Saturday, September 29th.
