National Solar Tour will be hosted online and in-person this year

The American Solar Energy Society (ASES) announced the 2021 edition of the National Solar Tour. This annual grassroots solar event will take place virtually and in neighborhoods nationwide the weekend of October 2.

The ASES National Solar Tour is a collection of “Local Solar Tours,” as well as standalone “Solar Sites” across the country. It is an opportunity for local solar enthusiasts to come together and share their unique solar story with others.
In the National Solar Tour, homes, businesses, schools and other organizations across the country open their doors, yards and roofs to neighbors who are looking to learn more about how they can use renewable energy. It is about neighbors talking to each other about solar, energy efficiency, other sustainable upgrades, financing, recommendations on installers, local laws or issues.
With virtual tours coming into play again this year, ASES is expanding to a broader solar network.
Solar advocates are encouraged to organize Local Solar Tours and Solar Sites in their neighborhoods or online. The National Solar Tour will closely monitor and follow the CDC guidelines for attendees and hosts.
Tour organizers can host Local Solar Tours and Solar Sites completely outside, inside with masks and social distancing, fully virtual or do a mix of virtual and in-person.
“The National Solar Tour inspires people across the country to make sustainable energy choices,” said Carly Rixham, ASES executive director. “Going solar allows people to reduce costs, support energy independence and reduce carbon emissions.”
This year’s National Solar Tour is looking to engage over 50,000 attendees and hosts of Solar Sites and Local Solar Tours in all 50 states, with a special presence in rural areas and LMI communities.
