Seattle Solar Tour 2013

The Seattle Solar Tour is an opportunity to see how local families are using solar energy to cut their electric bills, power their homes and even power their cars! Homes are open between the hours of 11 AM and 2 PM. You can drive or choose from a menu of neighborhood mini-tours that are bikable/walkable, so you can enjoy the last day of summer outdoors! To start the day, Seattle City Light is sponsoring two kickoff solar Q&A sessions at 10:30 am at the Ballard Library and Jefferson Park Community Center. Stop by for Solar Q&A, maps, and solar camaraderie.
