The 24th annual Solar Home Tour will be Saturday, October 8th and Sunday, October 9th in the Blount County community of Royal. This tour is part of the National Solar Home Tour sponsored by ASES, American Solar Energy Society, and is the largest grassroots solar event in the world.
The Blount County tour includes visiting 5 homes, all within 10 minutes of each other. The houses are both energy efficient and use solar technologies that are clean and renewable.
The tour is free as a community service but you do need to register to receive a schedule and map. The tours start at 9am and the Saturday and Sunday tours are the same. You’ll have a 40 to 50 minute tour of each house, including time for questions and then travel time to the next house. A shepherd will guide your group.
A brown bag networking lunch is designed for more detailed discussions and is held at the Dodeca-Yurt. Organizers will provide lemonade and water. You must register to attend. More information and registration at https://mygiftevent.com/event/solar-tour-alabama/2016-10-08/.
