If you’ve ever wanted to reduce the carbon footprint of your home, you won’t want to miss the October 1st tour of metro area homes which have done just that.
You’ll learn about new forms of insulation, improved window designs, replacing natural gas with heat pumps, and so much more. After touring the homes, don’t miss the expo of vendors from 5 to 7pm.
Think of it like a Parade of Homes, but where some of the homes were built sustainable but where most of them are older homes that have been made super-sustainable.
The 9am to 4pm tour starts with registration at the American Mountaineering Center in downtown Golden, 710 10th Street. For $10 per adult, you receive a guidebook and map for your self-guided tour. If you would like to ride in an electric car to the different homes, we have volunteers who will make that happen in their own Teslas or other EVs.
After touring the homes, come to the 3-5pm EV Roundup happening in the parking lot of The Net Zero Store, 17695 S. Golden Road, where Helio Home Inc. will be holding demos and answering questions about what you can do to make your own home more sustainable or even “net zero energy.”
You can register for the tour at NewEnergyColorado.com then pick up your guide book and map at Golden Real Estate, 1214 Washington Ave. on Friday, September 30th, 10 to 6. Register for the EV event at www.DriveElectricWeek.info.
