Residential buildings account for almost a quarter of all energy usage in the state of Oregon, and zero energy home design is an important strategy in climate adaptation. Join Solar Oregon for an open house tour of zero energy and “path to zero” homes across the state: the Go Zero Tour 2021 presented by Energy Trust of Oregon. This event is part of Sustainable Building Week. Don’t forget to secure your ticket to the separate virtual portion of the tour here!
This year’s tour features a diverse and exciting mix of projects. Explore new and retrofit homes, including single family, multifamily, tiny homes, and affordable housing, and learn the value of electrification, energy resilience, and energy efficiency. Meet the homeowners and builders behind each site, and learn about their path to zero energy.
