Fremont Residential Solar Tour
Saturday, October 05, 2019, 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM PDT
Category: Solar Tours

The City of Fremont is a Bay Area solar leader, with close to 7,000 electric vehicle owners and over 4300 properties with solar PV systems, many of which have storage integrated into their solar installs. In 2017, Fremont adopted a mandatory solar requirement for new residential construction and passed a solar preservation ordinance for existing construction. 

Come speak with residents about their experiences at sites which have solar already equipped, and learn about solar discount programs you can take advantage of, such as the Bay Area SunShares Program (bayareasunshares.org). The deadline to sign up for these programs is November 15, 2019 so if you’re considering going solar, this is an ideal opportunity to learn more about the process and benefits.

The event includes: an optional Solar 101 presentation in the morning, networking, and a tour of Fremont residences and a church equipped with solar and other green features, which will be open for viewing between noon and 4 pm.

This tour will be self-guided, free and open to the public. Whether you are a solar owner, completely new to solar, or somewhere in between, we welcome you! 

REGISTER FOR THE FREMONT RESIDENTIAL SOLAR TOUR HERE. It would be ideal if you could also RSVP on that page for the particular homes you intend to visit, so that the volunteer tour hosts have a sense of how many people to expect. Currently there are 11 homes and 1 church featured on the tour.

The tour is made possible through a partnership between NorCal Solar, the City of Fremont, Sunshares and East Bay Community Energy.
