Sunfinity Solar, a full-service provider of residential and commercial solar systems, will be the primary sponsor of the upcoming DFW Solar Tour, set for Saturday, October 7, from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Now in its eighth year, the tour opens more than 30 eco-friendly locations around the Metroplex, from single-family homes to schools, businesses and even a Texas State Park, to the public – all free of charge.
"We are very excited to turn a spotlight on the great potential of solar power, and this event is a perfect opportunity to meet neighbors who are already living with solar every day here in North Texas," said John Billingsley, Chairman and CEO of Sunfinity Solar. "The homeowners and business owners are all ready to talk one-on-one with tour goers and share their personal, real-world solar experiences."
Along with solar power, the tour stops will showcase a range of other renewable energy and environmentally friendly ideas, from rain-sensing irrigation systems to geothermal ground source heat pumps and electric cars.
The DFW Solar Tour is organized by the volunteer-run North Texas Renewable Energy Group and is held in conjunction with the American Solar Energy Society's 20th annual National Solar Tour, the world's largest grassroots solar event. This year, more than 165,000 participants will visit some 5,500 buildings in 3,200 communities across the U.S. In North Texas, locations will be open in Carrolton, Cedar Hill, Dallas, Denton, Fairview, Fort Worth, Frisco, Grandview, Irving, McKinney, Plano, Richardson and Southlake. (New locations are being added to the web site.)
