Solar Tour Host Site:

The Solar Tour functions like an open house, with attendees coming and going at different times throughout the day.  We encourage you to invite your family and friends to help with tour attendee education and management. Depending on location and weather conditions, host sites can expect a handful of visitors or as many as 100! You do NOT need to be an ISEA member to be a host site. All are welcome to spread the word about clean energy !


Host Site Recommendations:

  • Post tour sign in a visible location on the street.
  • Set up a registration table.  A registration form will be emailed to you. Please print copies for your guests to fill out.  Ask all guests to sign-in.
  • Make yourself available from 10:00am to 2:00pm to show attendees your renewable energy installation. Some host sites may have an outside system; while others are inside the home to show mechanicals or other green features.  Inside or outside, it is completely at your discretion.
  • Be knowledgeable about your installation as attendees will ask questions.  Feel free to display information, charts, and/or documentation that will help explain features of your installation.
  • Make it personal.  Share your story about why you chose to have a renewable energy system.
  • We highly recommend that each host site reach out to their local newspaper, village hall or radio station to market your participation in the Solar Tour.  ISEA will provide and solar tour press release template for your use. 


Tour hosts are asked to provide tour attendee data back to ISEA after the tour is over.

We appreciate your commitment to the renewable energy community and generosity necessary to be a Solar Tour Host Site.
