'Solar Tour' comes to Tampa Bay Oct. 6 to Oct. 7 to provide residential solar information

TAMPA — Interested in bringing solar energy to your home? The National Solar Tour is coming to Tampa Bay Oct. 6 and Oct. 7 to provide information to homeowners. The tour allows those interested to visit local homes and businesses that already have solar installations.

"Attending a solar open house is a great way for homeowners who have thought about going solar learn about the process from someone who has gone solar themselves," Solar United Neighbors, one of the event's sponsors, said in a release Wednesday.

About 17 locations in Tampa Bay are scheduled to participate in the open house. It is sponsored by American Solar Energy Society and Solar United Neighbors.
