Posted by Tom Kalinski Founder RE/MAX of Boulder on Wednesday, September 23rd, 2015 at 2:58pm.

Green-design supporters and homeowners who want to learn more about the latest in sustainable practices take note: Boulder’s first-ever Green Home Tour premiers Saturday, September 26.

Starting at 10 a.m. ticket holders will step inside the most innovative green projects in Boulder, including eight privately owned green homes spanning modern and traditional design and a broad range of budgets, two multi-family projects and one tiny house. 

Two hundred or more design-minded attendees are expected by organizers Colorado Green Building Guild and Colorado Renewable Energy Society. The event is geared toward those eager to discover the latest and greatest in energy efficiency, green building, and solar design.

Tour homes are selected to spark interest in green homes and promote the collaborative exchange of ideas on green building in the Boulder area.

LEED certified homes will be shown, including a LEED Platinum home, and homes rated EnergyStar 3.0 and Net Zero Energy.

Green features include passive solar design, solar photo-voltaic systems, high-efficiency windows, LED Lighting, geothermal systems, indoor air filtration systems, and environmentally preferable materials and xeriscaping. 

A green expo and after party will be held at the Bohemian Biergarten, 2017 13th Street, Boulder, for tour participants, volunteers and sponsors.

Event co-sponsor, Colorado Green Building Guild, is a non-profit geared to ensure wide-spread adoption of sustainable building practices in order to more efficiently use resources, create healthier buildings, and support vibrant sustainable communities. 

Co-sponsor and non-profit Colorado Renewable Energy Society aims to advance and raising awareness about all forms of renewable energy, energy efficiency, and the synergy between sustainability and economic development.
