About the Tour
The National Solar Tour is a chance for people all around the country to learn about solar, meet their neighbors and see solar power at work in their communities. Solar owners host open house events to share their experience going solar, and interested visitors get the opportunity to ask questions and consider going solar themselves. Events are volunteer-led, free and open to the public. The Tour is organized by Solar United Neighbors and the American Solar Energy Society, along with tons of local organizations and solar installation companies across the country.
If you have a solar power system, the National Solar Tour is your chance to connect with your community about solar! You can sign up to host an open house on the National Solar Tour at www.nationalsolartour.org/host. Anyone in the country who has solar can participate – homes, businesses, non-profit organizations, places of worship, etc. Hosting a solar open house is easy, and you don’t even need to invite people into your home or building if you don’t want to. All you need is the willingness to talk with interested members of your community about your experience going solar. You choose the day and time frame for your event, and the National Solar Tour team will send you resources and help you spread the word!
Registration to host a solar open house as part of the Tour is open through September 6th. If you’re interested in participating this year, check out the National Solar Tour website and sign up to participate!
