Efficient Energy of East Tennessee will host a solar tour and tailgate/cookout 10 a.m. to 3 p.m Saturday, October 2 at the installation, 813 Andrew Johnson Highway.
EETN staff will be available to answer any questions about the facility and give tours. Picnic foods will feature products from local companies Wamplers Farm Sausage and Family Brands International -- EETN says both companies have upcoming solar installations as well.
Team Living Light, the University of Tennessee team competing in Solar Decathlon 2011, will give a presentation at 11:30 at the NEG energy educational center on site. Solar Decathlon is a Department of Energy event that challenges students to design and build a functioning, energy-efficient, solar-powered house.
