solar in Illinois! The Illinois Solar Energy Association is excited
to host the 11th annual Illinois Solar Tour. As a part of the
National Solar Tour, solar-savvy home and business owners throughout
the state will open their doors to show off their solar! This FREE
open house type event allows attendees to view real-life examples of
how their neighbors are harnessing the sunís energy to generate
power, heat, and slash monthly utility bills.
This self-guided tour has attracted more than a
thousand people across Illinois in recent years. The tour affords
participants a direct perspective on the costs, processes, as well
as the economic and environmental benefits of going solar. Solar in
Illinois is poised for even more growth after the passing of new
legislation, and the tour is a great way to learn how to take
advantage of the opportunities this affords.
The Illinois Solar Tour host sites will be open on
Saturday October 7th from 10am to 3pm, and it is FREE and open to
the public. With over 125 host sites throughout the state, you have
the opportunity to visit a solar installation in your neighborhood!
