Tours provide opportunity to see solar across Virginia

The weekend of October 1 and 2 will be a busy one for solar in Virginia. Both the Metropolitan Washington Solar & Green Home Tour and the Hampton Roads Solar Tour are taking place to show off area solar systems.

For the Metro Washington tour, homes will be open from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. More than 40 residences will be featured. The Hampton Roads Tour features more than a dozen homes and buildings on the Southside, Peninsula, Middle Peninsula, from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. on Saturday.

The tours provide an excellent opportunity to speak with solar homeowners to ask them why they decided to go solar and their experience with the technology. It is also an opportunity to view the variety of ways solar can be attached to homes and view design styles that could work for your home.
