2013 Solar Home Tour

Southern Nevada Solar Home Tour - 2013

The 9th Annual Southern Nevada Solar Home Tour is just around the corner!

October 5, 2013 @ 10 am

2012 Southern Nevada Solar Home TourThe American Solar Energy Society’s National Solar Tour is the world’s largest grassroots solar event. It offers people from all over the country an opportunity to visit innovative green homes and buildings to see how you can use solar energy, energy efficiency and other sustainable technologies to reduce monthly utility bills and help tackle climate change. More than 160,000 participants will visit some 5,500 buildings in 3,200 communities across the U.S.2012 Southern Nevada Solar Home Tour

For nine years, the Southern Nevada Solar Home Tour has been a great event. Solar NV would like to express our heartfelt thanks to all the volunteers who make them possible, from the owners who opened their homes and shared their stories, to the volunteers who assisted throughout the day and of course, the sponsors who supported the event.

We received a lot of great comments about the tour, confirming the tremendous value it brings to the community:

The best part was being able to see innovation in practice. Each owner had different perspectives and knowledge but they each shared a loving commitment to making a difference. I look forward to our annual solar tour! Spread the word, take your colleagues, friends, family AND more importantly, a “denier,” to this meaningful as well as memorable event. ~ Cherie W.

I like hearing from solar homeowners about their experiences, what works and what they would have done differently. It is a lot of fun and I love meeting new people who are committed to making a difference. The solar home tour is a fantastic experience for anyone interested in sustainable living. ~ Bill R.

I loved being able to talk to owners who created their own environments using available technologies, incentives and rebates. Their experiences were inspiring. ~ Mary Beth H.

I liked seeing the technology in each home and the handouts that the homeowners provided. Having knowledgable Solar NV volunteers at each home was also nice so multiple tours could happen concurrently. ~ Rick V.
