TOUR IS FULL.
Experience how solar energy is powering homes and businesses in St. Louis on this small passenger bus guided field trip.
You’ll tour a home designed with a focus on sustainability and universal accessibility and an older South City home retrofitted with solar panels; learn about different types of solar panels at Ameren’s Renewable Energy Learning Center; and enjoy some pub grub and wet your whistle (beverages not included in cost) as we continue our discussion on our final stop at the Civil Life Brewery– powered by 104 solar panels. You’ll meet solar home and business owners, an energy engineer, and a solar installer on this up-close and engaging look at solar energy in St. Louis.
