The 2016 DFW Solar Tour, taking place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., October 1, allows the public to visit select innovative homes and buildings throughout the Dallas-Ft. Worth Metroplex and learn how neighboring homes and businesses are using solar energy, wind energy, energy efficiency and other sustainable technologies to save money and consume fewer natural resources. The tour is organized by the nonprofit, volunteer-based North Texas Renewable Energy Group, in cooperation with the Texas Solar Energy Society and the American Solar Energy Society National Solar Tour.
Tour participants will also learn how ownership options for purchasing and financing as well as third-party ownership options such as equipment leases and power purchase agreements empower the consumer with more choices. New this year are green building educational presentations by Realtor Beth Johnson, with Keller Williams Realty.
Admission is free. For more information and locations, visit dfwsolartour.org
