2012 EPN South Bay Solar and Green Homes Tour (Environmental Priorities Network event)

When: Saturday, May 12, 2012 8:30a-5:30p
Where: Beach Cities and Torrance
Cost: Free
The Environmental Priorities Network is sponsoring its seventh annual Solar Homes Tour in the Palos Verdes/ South Bay area. Attending this tour or any home included in it will open up a new world of technologies to help you to participate in a sustainable energy economy. Reducing energy use will help to save our planet from catastrophic climate change, and will save you money as well. The listed homes have many other environmental features like solar hot water heating, double pane windows, low voltage lighting, off-peak timed appliances, and native and drought-tolerant plantings. This is a great opportunity to find out more about conservation, renewable energy, and energy efficiency.

For more information about the Tour, contact Diane Wallace: 310-266-1241 / dmbarkwall@gmail.com or Lillian Light: 310-545-1384 / lklight@verizon.net. Each home will be open to visitors for two hours or more starting with the first one from 8:30 to 10:30 AM. The last home can be visited from 3:30 to 5:30 PM. At one home you may view the control panel showing the meter running backwards, and at another you may inspect the electric car in the garage. You are requested to present the flyer to the host or hostess of each home that you visit. http://www.pacificunitarian.org/pdfs/SolarGreenHomesTour2012.pdf
