Take a Peek at How Green Energy Living Looks




The 2017 DFW Solar Tour will be held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. October 7, by the nonprofit North Texas Renewable Energy Group. The public is invited to visit select innovative homes and buildings throughout the Dallas-Ft. Worth Metroplex.

The tour enables people to learn how homeowners and businesses are using solar energy, wind energy, energy efficiency and other sustainable technologies to save money and consume less of our natural resources. The strategies and techniques on display during this year’s tour range from things as simple and easy as changing to LED light bulbs and selecting more efficient appliances to cutting-edge, ultra-efficient eco-homes and businesses that generate as much or more energy than they consume.

The tour includes green building educational presentations by Beth Johnson, with Keller Williams Realty, the first Realtor to earn the Quadruple Crown of green building credentials and will present throughout the day, at TreeHouse Dallas the world’s first energy-positive home improvement store, which offers many sustainable solutions such as Sunpower solar systems and Tesla power packs.

Admission is free. For more information, visit ntreg.org.
