(Registration coming in August)
The 2013 Hampton Roads Solar Tour is a self-guided tour of over two dozen Hampton Roads homes and businesses that run on solar energy. Selected sites throughout all of Hampton Roads will be open for free open-house tours to showcase technology and share information on solar energy. This year four specific tour areas will be available. As last year, Southside, Pennisula and Middle Pennisula, with Eastern Shore being added new this year.
Experts will be on-hand at each site to answer questions. The 2013 Hampton Roads Solar Tour will be held on Saturday October 5, 2013.
As energy prices rise, this event offers participants the opportunity to tour homes and buildings to see how Virginians are using solar energy, energy efficiency, and other sustainable technologies to reduce their monthly utility bills and help tackle climate change.
The 2013 Hampton Roads Solar Tour is sponsored by the Hampton Roads Green Building Council. The local tour is part of the 2013 National Solar Tour. This year, more than 170,000 participants are expected to visit some 5,500 buildings in 3,200 communities across the United States. Now in its 17th year, the National Solar Tour is coordinated by the American Solar Energy Society (ASES), a non-profit organization, http://ases.org/. This is the fourth year for the local tour here in Hampton Roads, and last year we had over 600 participants!

Want to save on your electricity bills?

Homes and businesses on the tour demonstrate sustainable technologies like solar photovoltaic, solar hot water, solar pool heating, wind power, energy-efficient heating, geothermal heat, super-insulated and energy-efficient design, LEED-certification, green (living) roofs, rain-water cisterns, native plant landscaping, home (kitchen) gardens, rain gardens, and composting, as well as passive heating, cooling and ventilation. Owners and volunteers are available at each home to explain the technologies; their advantages, disadvantages, and financial benefits.
