Buffalo News article:http://www.buffalonews.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20121010/BUSINESS/121019934/1005 WNYSEA believes that this event helps to establish a need and demand for green jobs across the region. “Last year we had the largest tour in all of New York State, and this year we plan to go even bigger says Bernice Radle, Co-chair of the 2012 tour. We have confirmed the NFTA Living Roof Bus Shelter, CIR Electric’s moving solar array that moves with the sun to optimize sunlight, Singer Farm Naturals in Wilson and so many others. This is a great opportunity to learn from the folks who live with these technologies every day, not from a sales person trying to convince you to buy in. The Solar and Green Building Tour is an event that educates, inspires and encourages people to take the next step with their home or building.” WNYSEA will be kicking off the annual event with an awards ceremony at 9:30a.m., on Saturday, October 13, 2012 at Hispanics United of Buffalo – 254 Virginia Street on Buffalo’s West Side.
