2013 ARiES Energy Solar Tour

This Saturday - Your Chance to Tour Wampler's Farm Sausage!

Most of our solar tour stops are available throughout the month, but Wampler's Farm Sausage is open to the public for one day only!  Join us this Saturday, October 19, 2013 from 11AM to 2PM to see some exciting examples of renewable energy - solar and biomass!  Wampler's is located at 781 U.S. 70, Lenoir City, TN.  Get more details. 

ARiES Energy would like to invite you to participate in the 2013 ARiES Energy Solar Tour, part of the American Solar Energy Society's National Solar Tour event. The event runs most of the month of October so you can pick which day works best for you.
