See homes with ZERO $$ utility bills on HR Solar Tour

Imagine a home with No Electricity Bills.

If done properly, a smartly built green home featuring solar power, energy-efficient appliances, and proper insulation can result in the owner facing monthly electricity bills amounting to $0, or thereabouts.

This weekend is your chance to tour over two dozen homes on the the 2012 Hampton Roads Solar Tour, held on the Southside and the Middle Peninsula, Saturday October 6 and on the Peninsula Sunday, October 7, 2012.

The 2012 Hampton Roads Solar Tour is a self-guided tour of  Hampton Roads homes and businesses that run on solar energy. Selected sites in Norfolk, Newport News, Chesapeake, Poquoson, Williamsburg, Hampton, and Virginia Beach will be open for two days of free open-house tours to showcase technology and share information on solar energy. Experts will be on-hand at each site to answer questions.
