Street Smart San Diego 2008

The San Diego Solar Homes Tour is quite possibly the longest running and most popular tour in California.  Celebrating the ninth year of the free tour, over 40 homes throughout San Diego County are participating—including many in East County and San Diego’s Eastern region. This self-guided tour, sponsored by the California Center for Sustainable Energy,  offers real-life, working examples of three residential solar energy technologies: solar electric (photovoltaics), solar water heating and solar pool heating.

Just pick the home sites you want to visit and show up anytime between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. Look for the Solar Homes Tour lawn sign and you’ll know you’re in the right place! Both the homeowner and installer will be on hand to talk about their experience with solar. To find out which homes are in your area, check out the Solar Homes Tour website at or call (858) 244-1177.
