Green Buildings Open House Tour 2007

Throughout the Northeast, homes and other buildings are taking advantage of clean renewable energy and other green building technologies. On Saturday, October 7th from 10am to 4pm, more than 400 of these buildings opened their doors to the public for the Green Buildings Open House, featuring the National Solar Tour.

The event, which is part of the American Solar Energy Society's National Solar Tour, offers a unique opportunity for people to see first-hand how clean energy and green building practices can be put to work. Homeowners and building managers are on site to describe their green building features and answer questions. Members of the public are able to learn basic principles of green building, such as designing for solar heating ("passive solar"), energy-efficient building techniques such as superinsulation and air sealing, safe indoor air quality, and resource-efficient and healthy building materials. Many of the buildings demonstrate how solar hot water is collected and stored, how photovoltaics can be placed on or integrated into the shell of a building to produce electricity, and how wind can be used to generate power. The Green Buildings Open House demystifies green buildings, proving that they are comfortable, affordable, and attractive.

NESEA organizes the Green Buildings Open House in the six New England States, plus Delaware, New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania
