Attend the Tour

The tour is run completely by volunteers and free of charge to participate or attend. The event will be self-guided with MRES providing a list of sites and features in the six regions of the state via our website. On the day of the tour you can visit any of the sites during the tour hours of 10am to 3 pm and someone will be available to describe features of the location.

This is a great opportunity for you to see renewable energy in action and talk to owners with real-life experiences living sustainably. 

Join the Tour

If you have installed solar electric, solar hot water, passive or active solar air heat, wind energy, biomass, electric car charging, or sustainable living features and would like to have your location on the tour then join us! We ask that you be home and available on the tour day to provide information to those who visit.
