Register HERE and join us to learn about energy conservation and small scale renewable energy technologies on display during an AERO energy tour on Wednesday, April 24, in Missoula.  The tour, hosted by the Alternative Energy Resources Organization (AERO), will visit a municipal structure, two residences, and a solar greenhouse at the University of Montana.


The tour begins at the new downtown parking garage (designed by MMW Architects), which now hosts the state’s largest solar array – an 85 kW system installed by Sunelco of Hamilton, MT.  We’ll then visit two residences featuring energy conservation and efficiency measures (by energetechs) and a grid-tied solar system (by SBS-Solar).  We’ll conclude at the University with a short financing seminar from a Montana DEQ representative to introduce participants to the grants, loans, and tax incentives available for energy projects, before touring the site’s new solar greenhouse. Renewable energy dealers and installers will be on hand to talk about specifics.

FREE for AERO members; $10 for non-members.  Register HERE.
