Homes, schools and businesses statewide are participating in the 15th annual Green Energy Ohio Tour to showcase local installations and empower Ohioans to embrace clean energy.
Green Energy Ohio, in collaboration with the American Solar Energy Society, is hosting the 15th Annual Green Energy Ohio Tour, representing a wide variety of clean energy installations.
The event, scheduled Friday-Sunday, showcases the technologies that Ohioans are using to reduce monthly energy costs, decrease carbon emissions, and take advantage of tax credits and other incentives as they improve their property values.
"The Green Energy Ohio Tour shows families and businesses real-life examples of what can be done in today's clean energy arena to generate electricity, warm and cool their homes, heat water, and reduce monthly utility bills," Jane Harf, GEO executive director, said in a news release.
On Friday, Saturday and Sunday, volunteers will hold open house tours at one home and two businesses in the region -- the Doepker residence and the Franciscan Earth Literacy Center in Tiffin, and the DG AMP solar array in Bowling Green, which is the largest array in the state.
The BG solar array will be available for tours Friday from 4-6 p.m. and Saturday from 1-4 p.m. Visitors to the site, 16520 Carter Road, will need to sign a waiver, which can be found at http://www.greenenergyoh.org/wp-content/uploads/DG-AMP-BG-Form-of-Tour-Release.pdf
