    The largest annual grassroots solar and sustainable living event will occur both in-person and virtually on October 1-2, 2022, and online through January 2023. The ASES National Solar Tour is a collection of Local Solar Tours, in addition to single Solar Sites across the country that feature solar and sustainable technologies. Solar Sites can be homes, businesses, community solar arrays, EVs, or any other locale featuring solar and sustainable features. The National Solar Tour is the perfect opportunity for local solar and sustainability enthusiasts to come together and share their unique solar and sustainability stories with others while promoting solar adoption and sustainable living. Check out all the virtual events and events happening near you at nationalsolartour.org/map and RSVP to all the events you are interested in attending!

    Thanks, Macie for posting about the National Solar Tour kicking off this weekend for in-person tours of sustainable projects throughout the U.S.! Many will have active solar, but there are also examples of other low-energy, high-performance strategies including passive solar, water collection, transitioning to electric, etc. ASES is partnering with EEBA this year to bring even more projects to the annual tour. If you want to list a project for free next year in person or virtually, log on and see what others are doing.

    These virtual tours are wonderful!

    I especially enjoyed the tour of the Minnesota Net Zero Victorian since we live in a 160 year-old victorian. It shows what you can do with an old house in a cold climate.
