The 2014 Lansing Area Solar and Sustainable Homes Tour will take place 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.

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. If you have a home in the Lansing area with renewable energy features and would like to participate in the Tour this year, please contact us at info@lansingsolartour.org.

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.
