Solar Home Tour

    The Matheson house at Manor Lane South in Springs uses a photovoltaic system to generate power, along with other green features. The Kalfaian house on South Delrey Road in Montauk has been solar powered since the early 1990s, and the James house in Montauk on South Flagler Street uses both solar and geothermal systems.
    Visitors can take self-guided tours of the houses between 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. There will be information about each house and educational materials about solar and renewable energy, and the owners will be on hand to answer questions throughout the day.
