The public is invited to tour the University of Central Florida’s Florida Solar Energy Center for free on the second Thursday of each month.

FSEC staff will conduct the monthly tours of its highly energy-efficient facilities beginning Feb. 8, 2007 at 2 p.m. The center is located at 1679 Clearlake Road on the Cocoa campus that is shared by UCF and Brevard Community College. Monthly tours will be held the second Thursday of each month at 2 p.m.

Each tour will last about one hour and will be followed by a 30-minute video entitled “Killowatt Ours.” Visitors will have an opportunity to explore the FSEC building, one of the most energy-efficient commercial buildings in the world. Tour guides will point out some of the features that can be adopted by homeowners and businesses to make their buildings more energy efficient. Read more
