Green Energy Ohio sponsors statewide tours to showcase the installation and use of clean energy technologies. When we started more than 17 years ago, solar panels were a novelty and information was hard to find. GEO helped to fill that gap with in-person tour experiences, and went on to feature all forms of renewable energy, including wind, geothermal, and biomass.
GEO Tours are planned for and by Ohio clean energy advocates and connects novices, owners, installers, and technical experts.
In 2021, we took a new route and focused on all aspects of vehicle electrification. For an entire week in June, toured the state to share the work that is being done, the people who are leading that work, and the opportunities that electric vehicles present.
We had six themes for the EV Tour:
- Connecting clean energy with clean transportation
- Educating the public on EV infrastructure throughout Ohio
- Featuring EV business and industry partners
- Building an advocacy coalition for clean transportation
- Engaging policy-makers at all levels
- Supporting career pathways in clean transportation
