Solar Washington encourages Solar Tours that have a kickoff meeting with some educational content and a few good sites nearby. This is a good way for folks to get out and learn something about solar technology and see some real systems at work in their own neighborhood. The 2013 tour season has come and gone. You can still see some information in the links below. We'll start looking forward to the 2014 Washington State tour season next Spring. You can also see some tour information at the national ASES website here http://www.ases.org/solar-tour/.
