Hello all, Aimee here blogging on behalf of Kline May Realty and our family of agents. Today we're talking all about the Valley Solar Tour.
We'd like to make you aware of an eco-friendly home tour going on throughout the Valley this weekend, the Valley Solar Tour. It's on Saturday, October 5th and exact times vary by location.
The Shenandoah Valley Regional Open House Tour is in its third year, and this annual sustainability awareness event is made possible by the hard work of a Waynesboro resident and the many homeowners who have agreed to feature their energy-efficient homes and buildings.
This weekend you will be able to tour innovative valley homes and buildings to see how property owners use alternative energy. There are multiple locations in Harrisonburg, including Summit Avenue and Hillcrest Drive. A few Rockingham County properties are on the tour too. Check them out in Port Republic, Grottoes, Keezletown, and Mt. Crawford. For exact locations, click here.
During the tour, you will have the opportunity to talk directly with owners to hear about their experiences with solar electric systems, solar hot water systems, Passive House construction, and wind power.
Augusta County, Waynesboro, Staunton and the Roanoke Region will have homes featured on the tour as well.
Please note, this is a free, self-guided tour; visit any location in any order desired.
