Welcome to the Detroit Solar Tour!

Here you will find information about many of the sites in Detroit using solar or other sources of renewable energy to power their homes or buildings.

Detroit is home to more solar energy installations than you might think, in fact as of August 2018 we have tallied up just over 3.3 Megawatts of solar !!  The DETSolarTour page is dedicated to spreading awareness and helping people understand all the ways that clean, renewable energy is good for all Detroiters.

We’ll also be updating the information on this site as we learn more about different solar installations in the city. If you know of a solar array or installation that we’ve missed please click the button below and let us know!

Detroit Solar (Bike) Tour

For the second October running, Detroit Green Map has hosted the Detroit Solar Tour.  This tour was part of the American Solar Energy Society’s National Solar Home Tour, the worlds largest grassroots solar event.  If you missed this awesome event, you can check out some photos from the ride here, and rest assured we will be hosting more tours in the future!  Follow us here and on Facebook for more information.
