Houston Solar Tour
Saturday, April 23, 2016 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm
Houston, TX – April 23, 2016 – The Houston Renewable Energy Group (HREG) is presenting a free public Solar Tour to celebrate Earth Day! Homeowners in the Bellaire area will open their doors to neighbors for a first-hand experience of solar energy and how these systems benefit the environment on a local level.
The event will feature local solar energy installers and DIY homeowners showcasing the innovative solar technologies Bellaire residents are employing. Their solar systems drastically reduce energy bills and reduce harmful carbon emissions, while homeowners enjoy rich tax credits, improve their property values and assert energy independence.
“Houstonians have a voice in how they get their energy. Visiting homes on the tour will allow our community to learn, engage and be a part of the solution to current energy challenges and save money in the process,” Solar Tour co-chair, Rachael Cornick said.
On Saturday, April 23, from 9am to 1pm, four residential properties and one commercial property in Bellaire will be open to the public. Solar installers, homeowners, and volunteers will be available at each location to discuss benefits, cost, and any other questions regarding solar energy and green technologies. Some of the extra technologies that will be showcased on the tour are an electric vehicle, solar energy monitoring systems and more!
The Solar Tour is free and open to the public. Learn more at: www.houstonsolartour.com.
