Tucson Innovative Home Tour a popular success

Our place

TUCSON -- Over 100 people today toured our south downtown house, aka the Santa Rita Park House, as a part of the Tucson and National Solar Tours.

The tours were organized locally by the Solar Institute, and sponsored nationally by the US Dept. of Energy and the American Solar Energy Society.

People were very in to our solar power system, water harvesting systems, fruit & shade trees, gardens, chickens, bikes and biodiesel-powered VW Passat. They really liked watching the electricity meter spin backwards as the house produced more power than it was using.

We enjoyed hosting interested people and talking with them about sustainability, quality of life, living clean and cutting global warming pollution. Most of the visitors on the tour were planning energy and water efficiency projects for their own homes.
