Hickory Green Building & Solar Tour 2009

Covering Alexander, Burke, Caldwell, and Catawba Counties

In partnership with community leaders, partner organizations and the American Solar Energy Society, The North Carolina Sustainable Energy Association will once again host the annual Green Building & Solar Tour on Saturday, October 3, Saturday, October 10 and Saturday, October 17 in communities across our great state. The 2009 tour will educate citizens with the most up-to-date information on a wide range of green building solutions, technologies and energy efficiency measures.

This is your chance to visit and “see up close” various sizes and styles of “green” homes, businesses, schools, privately-owned renewable energy projects, and government facilities featuring solar and/or green building products and technologies on this self-guided tour in communities across North Carolina. Site owners, green builders, contractors, installers and other experts will also be available at tour sites to answer questions and provide more details.
