ISEA has traditionally held an all state solar tour the first Saturday in October. This year ISEA is planning eight City of Chicago solar tours in conjunction with Solar Power International (SPI13) being held in Chicago the third week of October.
These free tours will be open to SPI13 attendees and as well as the general public. ISEA will be hosting a solar lunch and learn that day for Illinois state legislators, who will then have the opportunity to attend one of the tours.
ISEA works to identify and remove barriers to renewable energy development in the Illinois. This unique opportunity will bring attention to local solar development and provide a platform to educate our legislators on the importance of good renewable energy policy.
A state-wide solar tour is tentatively being planned for the spring of 2014. We greatly appreciate and acknowledge the many volunteers that have opened their homes and businesses to allow others to learn about the many benefits of being powered by the sun! ISEA will be reaching out for help developing and implementing an 2014 Illinois Solar Tour.
