Solar Living Center Virtual Tour

If you can't make it to the Solar Living Center (SLC) in Hopland, CA to experience the sights of renewable energy at work, the sounds of running water, and smells of native grasses, trees, and flowers for yourself, our new virtual Google Tour is the next best thing. Use the labeled teardrop shapes or the links down the left side to jump to specific points of interest, or take a self-guided virtual tour by clicking and dragging (or clicking the white arrows) on the interactive image below. Best viewed using Google Chrome on large screens.
