We’ve assembled Northern Illinois’ finest builders, designers and homeowners that have pulled out all the stops to create healthy green homes. Together they send a clear message: to reduce our nation’s need to produce energy we must “build it tight and vent it right.” The tour will feature numerous homes that need very little energy to keep them comfortable year round and homes that produce more energy than they use.
Don’t take our word these homes are green. All homes on the tour have undergone third-party verification and testing to ensure the homes are built to national standards, earning certification through programs such as: ENERGY STAR for Homes, LEED for Homes, the National Green Building Standard, and Passive House.
Because the homes are built better, they deliver measurable savings, comfort, and health to their owners. Many of the homes on the GreenBuilt Home Tour will make you wonder why we all don’t have homes like these. You may even be surprised by the affordability of many of the projects.
Cost: GreenBuilt Home Tour Passport - $25.00 But you can register for just $20 by using code word "green" when you register using the Discount Pricing option.
