PennFuture's sixth annual Pittsburgh Solar Tour encourages solar and clean energy solutions by connecting the public to a variety of residential, public and commercial solar installations and solar installers. Each year, this free event attracts more than 200 participants from western Pennsylvania. This year's event will take place on Saturday, October 1st from noon to 4 p.m. and will feature exciting new additions and activities.

For instance, participants can choose from one of multiple local routes, that will feature a mix of solar homes, businesses, and public buildings in the Pittsburgh region.

Stay tuned for our maps for each route.

There will be:

*Various stops with educational resources & knowledgeable solar owners and advocates at each one
*Mapped bike paths on each route to increase accessibility and engagement
Children's activities & sustainable restaurants promoted on each route
