Imagine a home with No Electricity Bills.

The 2014 Hampton Roads Solar Tour is a self-guided tour of over two dozen Hampton Roads homes and businesses that run on solar energy, as well as homes with other renewable energy and sustainable technologies.  Selected sites throughout all of Hampton Roads will have free open-house tours to showcase technology and share information on solar energy. This year four specific tour areas will be available: Southside, Peninsula, Middle Peninsula and Eastern Shore.
Experts will be on-hand at each site to answer questions.
The 2014 Hampton Roads Solar Tour will be held on Saturday October 4, 2014. The central site at [TBD] will have educational material, speakers on sustainability and renewable energy technology, and vendor displays for renewable energy firms.
As energy prices rise, this event offers participants the opportunity to tour homes and buildings to see how Virginians are using solar energy, energy efficiency, and other sustainable technologies to reduce their monthly utility bills and help tackle climate change.

This year, more than 170,000 participants are expected to visit some 5,500 buildings in 3,200 communities across the United States.
