                                       The 24th Annual Cool House Tour                                                   

                      June 14, 2020

Applications are now being accepted for the 24th Cool House Tour, a collaboration of the Texas Solar Energy Society (TXSES) and Austin Energy Green Building (AEGB). This year’s tour is scheduled for June 14, 2020. We are looking for exemplary projects demonstrating the value and beauty of sustainable and energy efficient design, construction and if possible, locally sourced materials.

This tour has a long history of  bringing the public together with architects, designers, builders and professionals in the talented Austin marketplace. Perhaps more importantly, tour goers have the opportunity in most cases to visit with the homeowners who made the decision to choose sustainable and energy efficient design and construction.

Though the not technically a solar tour, there will be homes on this tour that will boast solar PV or possibly solar thermal.  At the Texas Solar Energy Society, we understand that homeowners gain the most value from solar installations when they design, build and remodel for energy efficiency first. This tour teaches you how and more.
