San Antonio holds another Solar Tour

From breweries, to outdoor cafes, to homes, to churches, San Antonio put on its charm last Saturday, holding its annual Solar Tour and bringing together over 25 homes and businesses with SOLAR in Bexar County to help educate people about the benefits of solar energy. Hundreds of Central Texas residents saw how local solar policy in San Antonio is helping to build a solar economy in the Alamo City. Residential solar rebates from CPS Energy, a new Feed-in-Tariff for commercial applications and even low-interest loans from local credit unions and banks. The tour was sponsored and organized by Solar San Antonio, one of the best non-profits around.

Here is one example — a beautiful home in North San Antonio with a 9 kw solar panel installed by Meridian. Some months of the year, the home doesn’t even have to pay an electric bill.
