The Utah Solar Tour is an annual event presented by the American Solar Energy Society and hosted by its regional chapter: the Utah Solar Energy Association. It is a tour of homes, businesses, schools, and government facilities that have on-site renewable energy systems installed including solar PV, solar thermal, and geothermal heating and cooling. View sites!

The tour is intended not only to provide the opportunity to admire the landscape, design, and décor of each property—but to also learn why property owners are adopting renewable energy systems right now; and how, in conjunction with their chosen contractor and state and federal incentives, they achieved their goal.

Participants who visit at least four sites will have the chance to win up to $500 in cool GOAL ZERO prizes! Tickets can be purchased at any site and are $5 per individual and $10 per family.

Welcome to the Utah Solar Tour 2011 webpage on Prizes!

Goal Zero has partnered with Utah Solar Energy Association to raffle cool solar powered products to participants who visit at least four sites! Check out the videos included below of the three different products that will be given away!

With your $5-10 purchase, each Solar Tour participant, eight years or older, will receive a Goal Zero raffle ticket. The educator at each site you visit will sign his/her initials in one of the available boxes on the bottom front side of your ticket, so be sure to keep it handy throughout your Saturday adventure! Once all four boxes have been initialed, fill out the contact information on the backside of the ticket and deposit it into the “Deposit” jar that will be available at each site.

Raffles will be awarded the week of the 26th. If your raffle is picked, your prize will either be shipped directly to you or made available at sponsoring locations. Don’t miss out on this fun opportunity! We’ll see you there!

Welcome to the Utah Solar Tour 2011 Video repository!

To increase interest in and attendance of Solar Tour 2011, the Utah Solar Energy Association teamed up with RealGreenWorld to create four pre-tour teaser videos that would introduce our online community to some of the customers and contractors who showcased sites this year.

These videos were not intended to be comprehensive in their content, though, so as to provide an incentive to actually visit this sites in person to learn more about how their installations were performed and the benefits the property owners are reaping.

Participants who visited at least four sites had the chance to win cool GOAL ZERO products!
