DOUGLAS COUNTY, Ore. — Dozens of people loaded the bus this weekend for the annual solar home tour.

The tour started at Phoenix Charter School and went to three different homes and a business.

The tour guides discussed green building, energy saving tips and solar technologies.

Those in attendance say it’s a great chance to see solar living first hand. Keith Lillie, a tour attendee, told KPIC News that he is concerned with the current energy situation we have now. “I find it kind of scary, the energy problems we have right now and how dependent we are on oil, and the fact that it’s a finite resource and we need to come up with different ways of facing that in the future,” he said.

More than 40 people came out for the tour.

The event was organized by the Global Warming Coalition.
