Solar Energy Tour in Bolton on Sunday

 Earth Day is the inspiration for this Sunday, April 27 tour of Bolton homes that use solar power to reduce dependence on fossil fuels. The tour, organized by Bolton Local, starts at 11 a.m. at the new solar farm at Bolton Orchards, and will provide opportunities to visit a number of Bolton homes in 2-hour blocks at each site, between noon and 2 p.m. and 2 and 4 p.m. There are homes on the tour that get all or most of their power from the sun; others use solar as the heat source for their hot water systems. Maps marking the location of each home on the tour will be available at Bolton Orchards the day of the tour, or by e-mail. For more information or to request a map, send e-mail to info@boltonlocal.org.
