Rolf Boone reports in The Olympian:
“The Thurston Solar Tour got just what it needed Saturday [Sept. 29] afternoon as gray skies gave way to another day of sun, prompting several people to get out and learn a little more about solar power in the area.
The tour, which has existed for about eight years, featured 19 stops. Theyre a mix of residences, businesses and one church that have had solar panels installed on rooftops, said Kirk Haffner, president of South Sound Solar, an Olympia business that installs and also consults on solar panel installations.
Haffner said South Sound Solar installed solar panels on 11 of the 19 tour destinations. The tour promotes renewable energy to the public, he said.”
