The 25th Annual National Solar Tour kicks off its virtual tour Sept. 28 and will feature Wyoming homes and businesses powered by solar energy. Powder River Basin Resource Council (Powder River) is working with the tour sponsors, Solar United Neighbors and the American Solar Energy Society, to feature 25 homes and businesses powered by solar energy.
The tour will run Sept. 28 to Oct. 2 and can be found at www.nationalsolartour.org/2020-local-tours/. Several communities, including Sheridan, Buffalo, Cheyenne, Laramie, Casper, and Gillette, will be featured in the Wyoming tours. The tours will feature videos of home and business owners showcasing their systems and talking about their experiences.
The Wyoming solar tour is part of Powder River’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.
