Our Mission Statement: New Energy Colorado works to engage citizens in shaping our energy future. We provide education about how our energy system and utilities function today, and what changes are needed to pave the way for a future dominated by energy efficiency, renewables and a smart grid. We work on programs including the Metro Denver Green Homes Tour and in building a community we call Solar CitiSuns. We invite you to get involved in this exciting period of transformation.
The Tour has been in the Denver area for twenty-three years, with similar events in all fifty other states. This self-guided tour features homes that demonstrate a wide range of strategies from remodeling options to full-on passive solar design to an entire community focused on clean, efficient energy. You can spend an hour or a full day exploring both new homes and homes that have a history of performance
Nearly every day we read or hear about new and evolving technologies that can help us save money in our homes while being environmentally responsible. Options are plentiful and questions inevitably arise. What is right for me and my home? Can I do this now or do I have to plan for it? Is it cheap and easy or more involved? Do I have to change my lifestyle? Our Metro Denver Green Homes Tour lets you speak directly with proud efficient homeowners, see and experience what they have done, and get all your questions answered without spin or pressure, so you gain the real-world facts, from the source, to make decisions that are best for you today and tomorrow.
These fantastic homes are open for tours from 9 am to 4 pm always on the first Saturday of October. Included in your registration is a fun reception party, appetizers, local beverages with a Green Expo, sustainable exhibits and Electric Vehicle Roundup from 4 pm to 6 pm back at the Church. Please note that homes are not available for tours after 4 pm.
