2016’s Chelsea area Solar Home Tour

Saturday, October 1
10:00 AM to 4:00 PM
Start at Chelsea Library

On the day after the first Habitation film, see some real homes in the Chelsea area!  The public is invited to tour homes, both conventionally and unconventionally built, that have been fitted to produce energy from renewable sources.  Most often in our area it is solar energy but we also we have some wind energy and passive design.  The Chelsea Solar Home Tour includes on-grid and off-grid sites, solar hot water, a straw bale home that earned Mother Earth News “Homesteader of the Year” 2015, and at least one home with a car charger that runs from the solar power system.

The way it works is: Begin at the Chelsea District Library (map) between 10:00 AM and 4:00 PM.  There, you can pick up a detailed tour guide and map.  Go around to visit the sites on your own schedule throughout the day.  We expect to have many returning sites from last year that could well deserve a second look plus some exciting new locations.

We are grateful for the sponsorship from the Great Lakes Renewable Energy Association and the partnership with the Chelsea District Library.
