Independent Home Tour - National Energy Awareness Month will have a special attraction this year. On Saturday, Oct. 16, 1993 people who live in energy independent homes powered by sun, wind, water or grid-intertie systems are being asked to open their homes to the public so that others interested in energy independence may have first-hand experience in observing the lifestyle. Tour logistics are being coordinated by Real Goods Trading Co. The tour is being promoted so that anyone interested can have access to people who have actually living on renewable energy. Although Real Goods is physically coordinating the Tour, the event is being handled as an industrywide, non-commercial effort. The goal is to have 100 participants in locations across the United States by Oct. 16. Interested parties-volunteers to show their homes or people interested in visiting an energy independent home in their area may call 800-762-7325 or write Karen Hensley at Real Goods, 966 Mazzoni St., Ukiah, CA 95482-3471
