San Diego Will Be Shining Bright on the 24th Annual National Solar Tour

Local tours include six educational seminars and 11 solar open houses, giving tools to declare energy independence, thanks to Sullivan Solar Power and local partners

The 24th Annual National Solar Tour is coming to San Diego and Orange counties on October 5, organized locally by Sullivan Solar Power, in conjunction with the National Solar Tour, presenting nonprofits American Solar Energy Society and Solar United Neighbors. The tour will be the largest in California and will feature events across the nation as a day for homeowners and community members alike to learn about the power of solar energy and to hear from their solar-equipped neighbors on the various benefits of going solar.

The National Solar Tour allows participants to speak directly with solar customers and their solar company about the costs, processes and financials of going solar. These tours also provide a glimpse at how solar+storage systems look on different homes. In the past, the nationwide tours have attracted 150,000+ people across 49 states. Sullivan Solar Power has planned several solar tours throughout the 15 years it has been in business, but this is the first year it has joined the national tour.

“We are thrilled that our local tour will be one of the largest and most robust solar tours in the nation,” said founder and president of Sullivan Solar Power, Daniel Sullivan. “Our clients, suppliers and nonprofit partners are excited to share their success stories with the community and create a space for hands-on education while learning about the power of solar and visiting operational systems.”

From 11 a​.m.-12 p.m. on October 5, there will be six solar + storage seminars taking place across the region. These seminars are free to the public and will include presentations from nationally certified energy practitioners, solar manufacturers and nonprofit experts. The seminars will cover solar technology, battery storage, policy updates, time-of-use rates, system design, how to choose a solar provider, the sunsetting federal tax credit and more.

There will be several solar home tours located near the six seminar venues where, after the seminars from 12-2 p.m., attendees are invited to visit homes that have made the switch to solar and learn about the process of going solar from their friends and neighbors. Each home is unique and will have a different layout and design. Several homes will also have battery storage, electric vehicles and electric vehicle chargers featured.

“Five years ago, my wife and I decided we wanted to power our house, our cars and our lives off sunshine, and so it’s been ever since and will be for years to come,” said Mark Hughes, host of a solar open house.
