Take a Twin Cities or Duluth area solar tour! These tours are sponsored by the Minnesota Renewable Energy Society and Minnesota Power. They have inspired many building and home owners to adopt the renewable energy habit. The tour features exemplary homes, businesses, and institutions that have incorporated renewable energy into the design and operation of their buildings. From geothermal heat pumps using the earth as a huge thermal buffer to wind turbines elegantly spinning in the breeze and the many incarnations of solar energy between earth and sky, this event will showcase different ways individuals and groups are working towards a sustainable energy future. Along the way, talk to neighbors, builders, architects, planners, and politicians about ways to conserve energy and make renewables a reality.
Tours are held every year in October, mark your 2007 calendar!
