Tour Past Favorite Tour Homes HERE
Welcome to the
Green Homes Tour!
For 2021, we return to live home tours starting on Saturday October 2nd. Our Tour headquarters is once again at the American Mountaineering Center, 710 10th Street, Golden, CO 80401
Each year, we feature homes that save energy, water and money for their owners, and make the air cleaner for all of us. By visiting these homes you will learn what makes them healthy for residents and the planet alike. We hope they will inspire you to make some changes in your own home.
Please support the Metro
Denver Green Homes Tour
with a donation.
Many of these homes started out as modest tract homes similar to much of the metro area’s housing stock. Through changes over time - from replacing lightbulbs to total remodeling- their owners made them more efficient and less expensive to heat, cool and light. In many cases, the initial modest changes inspired owners to do more – from adding solar energy systems to their roofs to eliminating natural gas entirely. The tour also showcases some stunning new homes in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains.
This year’s tour is presented in coordination with the National Tour of Solar Homes, sponsored by the American Solar Energy Society (ASES).
