October 3rd, 2015
The Minnesota Renewable Energy Society is highlighting clean energy projects across the state and in the Twin Cities metro area. We are looking for homes, businesses, farms and other organizations with renewable energy systems and sustainability practices to participate.
We already have some sites lined up but we are looking for more. Click here to see who is already on deck for 2015.
Join the Tour
If you have installed solar electric, solar hot water, passive or active solar air heat, wind energy, biomass, electric car charging, or sustainable living features and would like to have your location on the tour then join us! We ask that you be home and available on the tour day to provide information to those who visit.
Contact Chris Meyer to discuss what is involved in being a Tour Site at firstname.lastname@example.org
Attend the Tour
The tour is run completely by volunteers and free of charge to participate or attend. The event will be self-guided with MRES providing a list of sites and features in the six regions of the state via our website. On the day of the tour you can visit any of the sites during the tour hours of 10am to 3 pm and someone will be available to describe features of the location.
This is a great opportunity for you to see renewable energy in action and talk to owners with real-life experiences living sustainably.
Save the date of Saturday October 3, 2015 and stop back to see which of your neighbors are participating and learn about clean energy.
Volunteer as a Site Guide
W need volunteers to help staff the sites in shifts from 9:45 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on Saturday, October 3, 2015. Learn about renewable energy and help visitors to understand real energy alternatives. Training is provided on-site.
Please email email@example.com to volunteer at a site on the 2015 Minnesota Solar Tour.
