 Sheridan Solar Tour planned for August 18th

 Learn more about powering your home or business with solar power by taking the Sheridan Solar Tour. Powder River Basin Resource Council (Resource Council) is hosting this self-guided tour on Saturday, August 18th from 10 am – 4 pm.

Attendees can purchase tickets in advance for $15 or $20 on the day of the tour. This is a self-guided tour to six homes and businesses in Sheridan, so participants may start and stop their tour at the location of their choice. Since the tour ends at 4 pm, tour attendees should plan to begin their tour early enough in order to arrive at their last location by 3:30 pm.

“Sheridan is an excellent location for solar installation because we have so many sunny days per year. It’s exciting to see solar panels going up all over the community,” said Bernie Barlow, a Resource Council member whose home is being featured in the tour. “I enjoy sharing information about my home solar system because it has worked so well and started saving me money immediately.”

The Sheridan Solar Tour is part of the Resource Council’s RENEWyoming campaign to assist people around the state who are interested in going solar. As installation costs have dropped, Wyomingites have taken full advantage of this opportunity to generate their own power. The tour is an on-the-ground opportunity to learn more about solar installation and how it can work for you.
