24th Annual National Solar Home Tour

October 3, 2015 - October 4, 2015

Blount County in Alabama is the state’s Solar Home Capital. There are, at minimum, 11 solar homes in the county and that number is growing. See 5 of these solar homes (a standard home retrofitted for solar, an underground home, a straw bale home, a dodeca-yurt home, and a clerestory home), a variety of garden styles and numerous ways you can weave energy efficiency, sustainability, resilient community and permaculture into your own situation. The tour involves walking, though three homes are wheelchair accessible and for those requiring it, can be accessed by vehicle.
Registration is required for everyone attending tour, as space is limited.  E-mail or phone to register.
Cost: Free
Time: 9:00 AM – 4 PM either day
Bring a picnic lunch, lemonade will be provided.
Venue: Common Ground Intentional Community and other solar homes nearby, directions upon request.
This event is not hosted by ASAN. As one of ASAN’s roles is to share information and resources across our network so as to maximize all of our impact, we routinely post events that we ourselves are not hosting. If you have questions regarding this event, please contact event organizers rather than ASAN.
