Tour Homes and Businesses Across Arizona Utilizing Solar Energy

Come one, come all…this is the opportunity to view innovative green homes and building here in the state of Arizona.  The Arizona Style 2011 Tours of Solar and Sustainable Buildings is happening this month.   This event has been conducted nationwide for the past 16 years and throughout the state of Arizona residents have the ability to tour these designated homes and building for free to see first hand the advantages of solar energy and its uses.

This event is originally coordinated by the American Solar Energy Society (ASES).  It is the largest grassroots effort to educate the public on solar energy, how to utilize it efficiently and additional sustainable technologies.  The hope is that this education will encourage people to research solar energy further and hopefully have it installed on their homes/businesses.

Where can consumers find an event near them in Arizona?

The Tucson Business Tour will be featuring how to power a business using solar on Thursday, October 13th. At this tour business owners can learn about costs, installers, and ROI.

If consumers are located in the Valley Verde area on Saturday, October 22nd consumers can visit homes and businesses in Sedona and Cottonwood.  This event also is a free self-guided tour that will expose consumers to the latest technologies.  There will be certified solar energy installers on hand to discuss the technologies, incentives and financing options with consumers who are interested.

For those located in the Phoenix metropolitan area there will be two days of self guided tours – Saturday and Sunday, October 22nd & 23rd. There will be a number of homes and businesses that consumers may tour for ideas.  This event was originally scheduled for the weekend prior, but was postponed so please ensure you have the correct dates.

These tours are in place to help educate consumers and hopefully make more people aware of what sort of impact solar energy installations can have in a consumer’s home and the carbon footprint they leave behind.
