As is evident from the election stump, one of the paramount issues facing America and salient in this election year is the development of alternative sources of energy. The American Solar Energy Society is organizing what is expected to be the largest grassroots solar event in history in order to inform Americans about one such resource, solar energy. Named the National Solar Tour, it will offer people the opportunity to tour homes and buildings to learn how others are using solar energy and energy efficient methods in their communities to undermine rising energy costs.
As many as 150,000 people are expected to participate in 46 states across the country. ASES coordinates the National Solar Tour in partnership with dozens of organizations.
Most tours will be taking place on October 4, 2008, although the tours may vary by location so be certain to check listings for the latest details affecting your area at www.NationalSolarTour.org .
