Srinergy is joining the American Solar Energy Society and hundreds of solar-savvy installers and grassroots organizations throughout the United States to showcase more than 5,000 solar-powered homes, schools and businesses — in Michigan and across North America — for the 17th Annual National Solar Tour, the world’s largest grassroots solar event.
The event offers the opportunity for participants to visit solar-powered homes and businesses in the Detroit Metropolitan area and introduces the public to solar technologies that friends and neighbors are using to reduce monthly energy bills and improve property values as they assert their energy independence and create a cleaner community.
Last year’s National Solar Tour attracted more than 150,000 people in 49 U.S. states and Puerto Rico. Tours afford participants the direct perspectives of homeowners and installers about the costs, processes and economic and environmental benefits of going solar. The tours also give Michiganders a glimpse at how a variety of solar systems look in and around structures with different architectural styles. It demonstrates an array of clean, effective, practical and economical solutions available right here, right now.
Srinergy is located in Novi, with sales, design, and engineering capabilities available for commercial and residential solar panel installations throughout Michigan and other states as well as in Puerto Rico and India.
