2012 Green Energy Tour Week is fast approaching. Make plans to see Ohio businesses and homes with green initiatives.

Green Energy Ohio Tour

Green Energy Ohio Tour week is coming Oct. 1-7. Green energy business tours will be going on during the week and green energy homes and community spaces will be taking place over the weekend.

I went on the behind-the-scenes Columbus Zoo and Aquarium tour during solar tour week two years ago and learned how the zoo uses solar and geothermal energy to lessen its environmental footprint and save money. I look forward to checking out some of the homes and businesses on this year's tour.
