On Sunday, September 27 the community of Lee Vining will host a Solar Walk to celebrate and learn from businesses and residents that have installed solar systems as a renewable energy source. We will visit several local solar installations in Lee Vining beginning at the Mono Basin Scenic Area Visitor Center at 1:00pm. From there we will make stops at the Lee Vining Community Center, Channel Shell gas station, and the Mono Lake Committee Information Center & Bookstore.

“Solar Pioneer” tokens of appreciation, made by local schoolchildren, will be presented in appreciation of leadership in using the renewable power of the Eastern Sierra sun. After the walk, local solar installer Sierra Solar will display solar panels and information on incentives and the process in front of the El Mono Motel & Latte Da Coffee Café. Mono Basin homeowners who have installed solar panels will share their experience and cost savings as well.

We hope you will join our community in celebrating the potential of solar as we move into a future of renewable energy.

To join the walk, simply meet at the Forest Service Scenic Area Visitor Center in Lee Vining at 1:00pm and plan on walking about 1/2 a mile. Children are encouraged to attend!
