Energy is the topic of the day, and clean, renewable energy is being promoted at the local, state, and national levels. Many Americans want new sources of energy that positively affect our atmosphere, our independence, and our pocketbooks. During the past few years, numerous Utah legislators have sponsored and debated bills designed to shift the focus from fossil fuels to clean, renewable energy.
I would like to invite you and your family, friends, and neighbors to attend this year’s Utah Solar Tour. Sponsored by the Utah Solar Energy Association (the local nonprofit chapter of the American Solar Energy Society), the 2010 Utah Solar Tour is scheduled for Saturday, September 25, 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. This is a FREE public event.
During this event, you will learn about the latest solar technologies and applications. Professionals will teach you how to install solar equipment at your home or business and what financial incentives are available for doing so.
You will be able to visit homes and businesses using renewable energy from Payson to Logan. Map out your tour of sites near you for Saturday, September 25, by visiting http://utsolar.org/index.php/solar_tour/overview/.
Don’t miss this opportunity to learn everything you ever wanted to know about renewable solar energy. Join the Utah Solar Energy Association for a solar-powered weekend.
