The tour is organized like an OPEN HOUSE, so you get to choose which homes and businesses (host sites) to visit, how many, and when, within the 10:00am - 3:00pm time span. Host sites have been chosen within each geographic region for their proximity to others and to facilitate the option of visiting all of them. Each host site tour will take anywhere from 15 - 45 minutes, depending on the size of the site and the number of renewable energy installations.
