The 10th annual DFW Solar Tour will be held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., October 5, at a selection of innovative homes and buildings throughout the Dallas-Ft. Worth Metroplex. Thousands of visitors have already toured homes, schools, libraries and other energy-efficient, sustainable buildings to see what forward-thinking people in North Texas are doing to build a self-sufficient, renewable sustainable future.
The strategies and techniques on display range from changing to LED light bulbs and selecting more efficient appliances to cutting-edge, ultra-efficient eco-homes and businesses that generate as much or more energy than they consume.
The DFW Solar Tour is organized by the nonprofit volunteer-based North Texas Renewable Energy Group, Inc., in cooperation with the Texas Solar Energy Society and the American Solar Energy Society National Solar Tour. The National Solar tour is the largest grassroots renewable energy event in the nation, with more than 165,000 participants expected to visit some 5,500 buildings in 3,200 communities across the U.S. The DFW Solar Tour is the fifth largest solar tour in the country.
