This 2008 home at 1960 S. Gilpin Street, near Denver University, was built to Passive House standards. It is super-insulated and solar-powered, generating more electricity than it consumes. It is grid-connected but with battery back-up so that it can function off-grid. The seller’s monthly bill from Xcel Energy is $5.89. There is no gas meter and no furnace or air conditioner, because they are not needed. A solar thermal panel provides the home’s domestic hot water. You’ll like the main-floor master suite! And the location is great — four blocks to the light rail station, and four blocks to DU and the Ritchie Center. Wash Park is a short bike ride away, too! There are so many sustainable features to this house that you really need to watch the video tour at www.DenverPassiveHouse.com. The price has just been reduced to $885,000. Come to our open house this Saturday, 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
