Full House at the MinnePHit Project

Thanks for those of you who came out yesterday to see the MinnePHit House in South Minneapolis. We literally had a full house and shared many great conversations after the initial presentation. Thanks for your interest. I suppose it did help that the StarTribune published an article about the project the same morning.

PHitW will be on this year’s MRES Solar Tour

MRES Solar Tour 2011 logo

Minneapolis – The free, self-guided 16th Annual MRES Solar Tour Saturday, October 1, includes open houses at about 50 Minnesota homes, businesses and organizations that have solar and other renewable energy installations. Organized by the Minnesota Renewable Energy Society (MRES), the tour includes open houses in the Twin Cities and several other Minnesota communities from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

For the first time, this year the online guide to sites at www.MNSolarTour.org will list each site’s additional eco-friendly features. Besides the usual pictures, maps and details about alternative energy technologies for each site, the guide will list eco-friendly features such as urban chickens, electric cars, rainwater storage systems and the like. Tour guests must register at www.MNSolarTour.org to obtain addresses of the tour sites.

“The solar tour is popular with people who are thinking about purchasing some kind of renewable energy technology because it gives them a chance to see lots of systems and talk to lots of owners,” said Laura Cina, managing director of MRES. “The lists of other eco-friendly site features this year should draw even more people to the event.”

The owner, representatives from TE Studio, as well as representatives from Energy Concepts will be on site during the day to answer your questions.
