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.
