The 2014 Lansing Area Solar and Sustainable Homes Tour happens on Saturday, Oct. 4. This tour is part of the annual American Solar Energy Society Solar Home Tour, an event that takes place in communities across the country. The Great Lakes Renewable Energy Association is coordinating local tours across the state of Michigan.

Homes with solar photovoltaic panels as well as homes with passive solar and energy efficient features (e.g. straw bale construction) will be on the local tour. Some sites will be open in the morning (9am – 1pm) and others will be open in the afternoon (12pm – 4pm). Details are on the map page.

The Meridian Fall 2014 Recycling Event will be held on the same day from 9 am – 2 pm at Chippewa Middle School, 4000 Okemos Rd., Okemos.
