On Saturday, April 5, 2008, the Southern Nevada Solar Home Tour will provide a glimpse into the future of energy-independent, green living. Interest in solar power is on the rise as fossil fuel prices continue to skyrocket. Twelve solar powered and/or green-built homes will be open for public view.
The Southern Nevada Solar Home Tour will include homes, schools and businesses across the valley featuring examples of renewable energy systems, energy and water efficiency, alternative construction, green building, and healthy interiors.
The tour kicks off at the Springs Preserve, located at 333 South Valley View Blvd., Las Vegas, NV (just south of 95). Informational exhibits will be open from 9 AM – 12 noon at and the self-guided Solar Home Tour runs from 10 AM until 4 PM. Tour cost is $15 per vehicle and car pooling is enthusiastically encouraged. Hybrid/alternative fuel vehicles receive a $5 discount. Advance registration is required at www.solarnv.org.
