Now in its 21th year, this event offers you the opportunity to tour innovative green homes and buildings to see how you can use solar energy, energy efficiency, and other sustainable technologies to reduce monthly utility bills and help our environment. More than 150,000 participants will visit some 5,000 buildings across the U.S.
