Annual Tour to Showcase San Diego Solar Homes
The 15th Annual National Solar Tour, the world’s “largest grassroots solar event,” is set to kickoff today across the country as solar-powered homes and businesses will open their doors to the public. Sponsored by the American Solar Energy Society (ASES), the tours showcase how photovoltaic (PV) panels and solar hot water systems can help cut electricity bills and reduce reliance on carbon-based sources of energy.
One of the nation’s largest solar tours will take place in San Diego, California — one of the nation’s leading cities in solar power deployment. Over 5,000 homes, businesses and schools will be showcased, as the California Center for Sustainable Energy (CCSE) and the San Diego Renewable Energy Society (SDRES) have joined forces to bring attention to the solar revolution happening in this southern California municipality.
If you live in the San Diego area, don’t miss out! Tours last from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. today. Those interested will be able to gain valuable information about how to install a solar energy system and the amount of savings one can expect once the system is in place. Nationally, 5,500 solar-powered buildings will be showcased with the intention of turning more people on to the possibility to installing a system. It has been estimated that, within the next 5 to 6 years, 11 million homes across the United States will be solar-powered.
