Eco-Friendly Friday

In case your not busy tomorrow, I have a nationwide event you might want to check into. On Saturday, October 3rd (in most areas) the American Solar Energy Society (ASES) is hosting the National Solar Tour. According to their website:

The ASES National Solar Tour is the world's largest grassroots solar event. This event offers you the opportunity to tour innovative green homes and buildings to see how you can use solar energy, energy efficiency, and other sustainable technologies to reduce monthly utility bills and help tackle climate change. More than 150,000 participants will visit some 5,000 buildings in 3,000 communities across the U.S.

I would love to have solar panels on my house and I am green with envy for those who do. There is some amazing technology out there that lasts longer and is cheaper than years past. I live in a perfect area for solar panels, unfortunately my pocketbook won't go for it. This tour is also highlighting energy saving tips (some of which I have mentioned before).

If you would like to drool over some green energy click here to find the tour near you.

I went to this 2 years ago in Houston area. Even the solar advocates recommend other energy saving measures before installing solar. Reduce energy usage before investing in going off the grid - caulk, double pane windows, energy efficient appliances, etc.
