The Illinois Solar Tour is a FREE event on October 3rd from 10am-2pm. It will feature solar homes and businesses who are opening their doors to share their experiences of living and working with solar energy.
Juggle.com in Swansea is one of those businesses who will allow visitors to tour the solar installation and hear firsthand what it's like to live & work with solar energy.
Tour participants will see the 9.6 kilowatt solar electric system above the business' main entrance and inside they will be treated to a reception with refreshments and a special presentation by Mike Hornitschek, Director of Strategic Development at StraightUp Solar, former Commander of Scott Air Force Base and longtime Belleville resident.
