Valley Solar Open House Tour Today

Posted: October 6, 2012

HARRISONBURG — The community is invited to take free tours today of local homes and businesses that use solar energy as part of the Shenandoah Valley Regional Solar Open House Tour.

Fifteen locations in Harrisonburg, Rockingham and Augusta counties, as well as Waynesboro and the Roanoke area will open doors to residents at different times throughout the day for the tour, which is part of the American Solar Energy Society National Solar Tour.

A full list of participating locations and times is available at www.svrea.org. Local organizer Jim Coate said he hopes the tour will encourage others to consider solar energy.

“This way [people] can talk to somebody who’s had the system for a while,” he said. “Most people are just trying to learn what it’s actually all about.”
