THE AUSTIN COOL HOUSE TOUR -June 7, 2015
Though the Cool House Tour
(this is the 2014 site) is not technically a solar tour, more than half of the homes on this tour typically boast solar PV or solar thermal. A collaboration of TXSES and Austin Energy Green Building, it's a huge success, for tour goers, the professionals showcasing their work and for the proud homeowners who are the drivers of the move to live more sustainably. The importance of this tour cannot be over stated, as citizens strive to conserve resources while considering comfort. Homeowners gain the most value from their solar energy systems when they design, build and remodel for energy efficiency first. This tour teaches you how and more.
