Denver/Boulder 2010 Solar & Green Homes Tour
View dream homes to typical family retrofits
On April 21, 2010, the White House announced that $25 million in funding was received by Boulder County in partnership with the City and County of Denver, Garfield County, the Governor’s Energy Office, Xcel Energy and others. This funding will allow for the launch of the Colorado Retrofit Ramp-Up Program.
According to Boulder County, “under this initiative, communities, governments, private sector companies and non-profit organizations will work collaboratively to promote large-scale retrofits and make energy efficiency resources accessible to homeowners and businesses across the country. “
Homeowner education is a key piece for the success of this initiative and the Denver/Boulder 2010 Solar & Green Homes Tour September 25th and 26th aims to provide this type of education to drive demand in the energy efficiency and renewable energy industry. The homes on the tours will serve as examples of what a homeowner can do to lower their energy bills and improve the efficiency and comfort in their homes. Homeowners and green building professionals will be available at each of the homes to answer questions.
The Sunday, September 26th 15th Annual Boulder tour, supported by the Center for Resource Conservation (CRC) has chosen three homes in Central Boulder, one each in South Boulder and East Boulder, five homes near downtown Louisville and two homes in Nederland within walking distance of its Community Center. The Saturday, September 25th Denver Tour, supported by the Colorado Renewable Energy Society (CRES), has four homes near city park, three in north Denver, and six in the Golden/Evergreen corridor.
Cost for each event is $5 and you can register at http://www.conservationcenter.org/energy/tour.html for the Boulder events and at http://www.cres-energy.org/events/tour/ for the Denver events.
