The National Solar Tour is the largest grassroots renewable energy event in the nation.


On October 5 & 6, 2019, hundreds of people who have gone solar across the nation will open their homes and businesses to engage their communities around the power of solar energy.

Solar homes, businesses, non-profit organizations, municipal buildings, religious institutions, schools, and community solar gardens are all invited to host solar open houses as part of the National Solar Tour.
