In conjunction with the American Solar Energy Society’s National Home Tour, Tidewater locals are opening their doors to shine a light solar energy systems. This free event organized by the Solar Group of the Hampton Roads Green Building Council consists of 2 dozen tour sites across the region and features a host of resource efficient and sustainable technologies in addition to solar. New locations on this year’s tour include a state of the art dwelling developed by students from ODU and HU, a LEED Platinum home on the Eastern Shore, and a solar concentrating steam generator in Norfolk.
For Shore Drive residents, 2 homes are conveniently located at the North End and were showcased in the Virginian-Pilot’s coverage of the tour.
