The Louisville Solar Tour showcases the solar technologies your neighbors are using to drastically reduce monthly energy bills, reduce harmful carbon emissions, and enjoy rich tax credits and cash incentives as they improve their property values. It can be experienced in groups by bus and bike or as a self-guided tour.
The Louisville Solar Tour shows families and businesses real-life examples of how their neighbors are harnessing free energy from the sun to generate electricity, warm and cool their homes, heat water and slash monthly utility bills.
Tours afford participants the direct perspectives of homeowners and installers about the costs, processes and economic and environmental benefits of going solar. The tours also give participants a glimpse at how a variety of solar systems look in and around structures with different architectural styles.
