The National Solar Tour is a movement of local solar tours across the nation every October.

The ASES National Solar Tour is the largest grassroots solar event in the nation, involving over 30,000 participants in 2016 in over 60 cities and towns nationwide.

In conjunction with Energy Awareness month every October, homeowners and businesses in neighborhoods across the country open their doors and show what they’ve done to slash utility bills and help cut pollution from electric generating plants. It offers the opportunity to informally tour innovative green homes and buildings, and see how solar energy can be used efficiently. The tour hopes to inspire people across the nation to make sustainable energy choices that reduce costs, support energy independence, protect against power outages, and reduce carbon emissions.

Get ready to see and/or showcase your solar and other clean energy projects. This is a chance to see affordable and practical technologies, in your neighborhood, that benefit the environment and are part of the solution to our nation’s energy problems. If you are considering solar energy, please consider visiting a business or resident participating in the National Solar Tour to learn more.

We are pleased to be awarded a Department of Energy Catalyst Sunshot award for the National Solar Tour.

We are very excited to announce the 2016 Solar Tour is brought to you by our platinum sponsor Enphase!  Please check out Enphase for their amazing microinverters and upcoming energy storage products!


If you would like to be tour organizer, or, or have a high-efficiency home or business you’d like to showcase — then mark your calendar now for next October. That’s when thousands of people will open their homes and offices across the country, to show their neighbors what distributed power and efficient design can do to reduce utility bills and clean up the Earth’s atmosphere. Contact to organize a tour, sponsor a tour, or to find out more information.

“Sustainable living is not only good for the planet, it’s good for our wallets,” said Ed Begley, Jr., “The National Solar Tour offers families an opportunity to have meaningful conversations with friends and neighbors who’re reaping the benefits of renewable energy and energy efficiency each and every day. It’s a great way to get an up-close and personal perspective on how easy it can be to live the green life — and how rewarding. ” – Ed Begley, Jr


This event is coordinated nationally by the American Solar Energy Society in collaboration with dozens of outstanding partner organizations. It takes place annually in October in conjunction with National Energy Awareness Month.
