Take a virtual solar tour through the Point Breeze section of Pittsburgh to see one of its many solar homes.

Please RSVP to visit us on the National Solar Tour. We are open for the tour on Saturday and Sunday, Oct 2 and 3 from noon to 6 pm. Please use the Solar Tour Map to sign up and to find other homes on the tour. Thanks. Video credit: Greg Kochanski
