Visit us on the Illinois Solar Tour this Saturday, September 22nd! From 10:00am to 3:00pm we’ll be welcoming visitors, showing our solar panel system (installed by WindSoleil this past winter), and talking about our commitment to renewable energy and energy conservation.
The Illinois Solar Tour is organized like an open house, so you can choose which homes and businesses to visit, how many, and when (within the 10 to 3 time span). There are 8 sites in Chicago, and dozens more in the nearby suburbs. The tour is completely free, and if you register ahead of time you’ll be entered into a drawing to win a free solar cell phone charger!
The Illinois Solar Energy Association (ISEA) organizes the Illinois Solar Tour every year as part of the American Solar Energy Society (ASES)’s National Solar Tour — the “world’s largest grassroots solar event.” More than 160,000 participants will visit some 5,500 buildings across the country during the National Solar Tour. We’re proud to be part of this event, and we hope you’ll join us!
