Every year the American Solar Energy Society (ASES) hosts a National Solar Tour day. The local ASES chapter has planned a tour of locations in State College that have solar (both photovoltaic and solar thermal) systems. It is one of hundreds of tours sponsored by grassroots organizations and solar installers throughout the country that afford participants the direct perspectives of businesses, home owners and installers about the costs, processes and benefits of going solar.
"We educate more than 96,000 students and employ more than 20,000 workers at 24 locations across Pennsylvania. Through our commitment to sustainability, we have the scale and the reach to effect real change."
