Birmingham’s First Solar Home Tour Announced

Birmingham, September 29, 2016: In conjunction with Energy Awareness month every October, homeowners and businesses in neighborhoods across the country open their doors and show what they’ve done to slash utility bills and help cut pollution from electric generating plants. It offers the opportunity to informally tour innovative green homes and buildings, and see how solar energy can be used efficiently. The tour hopes to inspire people across the nation to make sustainable energy choices that reduce costs, support energy independence, protect against power outages, and reduce carbon emissions.

Get ready to see solar power generated and other clean energy projects. This is a chance to see affordable and practical technologies, in your neighborhood, that benefit the environment and are part of the solution to our nation’s energy problems. If you are considering solar energy, please consider visiting a business or resident participating in the National Solar Tour to learn more.

For the first time, Birmingham will have its own Solar Home Tour. Tours have been occurring in other parts of the state, but will be brought to the Magic City for the first time in 2016. This year’s Birmingham events will be hosted by the Alabama Solar Knowledge Project of the Alabama Environmental Council, UAB Sustainability, Eagle Solar and Light, and Vulcan Solar Power.

Visit one (or all) of these Birmingham locations anytime during their time-slot to learn more about how solar energy can help you reduce electricity bills, reduce carbon emissions, and achieve energy freedom!
