Louisville Solar Tour 2009


On Saturday,October 3, 2009, Louisvillians will join more than 140,000 people across the United States by touring more than 5,000 homes, businesses and schools to learn about renewable energy and energy efficiency by participating in the 14th annual American Solar Energy Society’s (ASES) National Solar Tour. The Louisville Solar Tour is sponsored by the Kentucky Solar Energy Society  (KySES), the local chapter of ASES.

“In the wake of national polls revealing that runaway energy costs is the economic issue Americans believe most personally affects them, the ASES National Solar Tour brings real-life examples of how neighbors are harnessing free energy from the sun to generate electricity, warm and cool their homes, heat water and slash monthly utility bills,” said Neal Lurie, Director of Marketing for the American Solar Energy Society.


Local residents tired of rising energy prices will discover the latest insight on how neighbors can use solar energy and energy efficiency to become more energy independent.

Homes and buildings on the free self-guided Tour have incorporated solar thermal, solar photovoltaic (PV) and passive solar, as well as energy-saving building construction techniques. The event will be hosted at the award-winning The Green Building at 712 East Market Street and will be a good opportunity for participants to learn about their solar energy options. More information can by found at www.LouisvilleSolarTour.org.
