Living with the Sun Solar Tour
Arizona Governor Jan Brewer has proclaimed October to be Arizona Solar and Renewable Energy month and to celebrate, the 2013 "Living with the Sun" Solar Tour kicks off this weekend Saturday-Sunday, October 26-27. This free self-guided tour of 10 sites in the Phoenix metropolitan area has great local examples of sustainable, solar-powered, and energy-efficient buildings. The Valley's tour is part of the larger annual American Solar Energy Society National Solar Tour.
ASU’s own Wrigley Hall, the headquarters of the School of Sustainability and Global Institute of Sustainability, is scheduled on the tour for both Saturday and Sunday, 1:00-4:30 p.m. There will be building experts on hand at Wrigley Hall to answer your questions about the building's solar and wind systems, native vegetation, recycled materials, and lighting techniques. Wrigley Hall is located at 800 S. Cady Mall on ASU’s Tempe campus on the corner of College Ave. and University Dr.
