 To register, email andyboeke@yahoo.com or call 502-223-7936


Attend this FREE event where you can tour existing solar installations to see how Kentucky families and businesses are harnessing free energy from the sun to generate electricity, warm and cool their homes, heat water, charge their electric cars, and slash monthly utility bills.


The tour will offer direct perspectives from homeowners, businesses and solar installers about the costs, processes and economic and environmental benefits of going solar.  You will have an opportunity to tour solar homes and businesses harnessing the power of the sun, interact with solar installers and learn more about how to put solar to work for YOU!  


Participants provide their own transportation and are welcome to attend the tour at either or both tour sites.  This event is free but pre-registration is requested by emailing Andy McDonald at andyboeke@yahoo.com or call 502-223-7936.


We look forward to seeing you!
