Though many of the tours fall under the umbrella of one of the 55 ASES chapters, anyone can register a tour, including solar installation companies, utility companies, municipalities, nonprofits, and individuals. Some tours span several states and include dozens of projects; others consist of a single house with a PV array. Some tours are self-guided and free; others, like the RVGS tour, include transportation and a fixed schedule.
