Earth Day Solar Trolley Tour Loads of Fun!

Thank you to everyone who participated in the Earth Day Solar Trolley Tour around Canton, MI this weekend.

The tour took place between 10 and 2 Saturday the 14th. We hold our earth-day before or after the actual date because there is just too many activities taking place, we don’t know how anyone can choose.

There were a lot of families that took part this year and after a tour of the demonstration center we hopped on the bus around 11am.

It was a fun tour. If enough people are interested we may do this again in October for the National Solar Tour. The weather looked ominous but cleared enough for us to be relaxed and take our time to hear their experiences and ask plenty of questions.
