New this year

This year the American Solar Energy Society is excited to partner with Solar United Neighbors in organizing the 2018 National Solar Tour. A national organization representing the needs and interests of solar owners and supporters, Solar United Neighbors helps people go solar, join together, and fight for their energy rights. Together, ASES and Solar United Neighbors are working to organize the largest national solar tour in history.

To help us get there, any solar home or business owner around the country can now host a solar open house, regardless of whether there is a local ASES chapter tour in your area. Non-profit organizations, municipal buildings, places of worship, schools, and community solar gardens are also invited to host open houses on the Tour.

Yes, that means anyone who has solar across the country can now participate in the National Solar Tour! All you need to do is sign up to host a solar open house. Every solar open house host that signs up will receive a resource package in the mail as well as an individual online RSVP webpage and flyers to help promote your solar open house with your network and in your community. Your solar open house will be added to our National Solar Tour Map and we’ll stay in touch with you to provide more information and helpful solar open house tips, leading up to the Tour. If you’re participating in a local ASES chapter tour, let us know when you register and we’ll note your local ASES chapter affiliation.
