Dear friend,

I am pleased to announce the 2005 Northeast Green Buildings Open House.

If you are interested in learning how to incorporate green building practices, products and alternative energy into your home, school or building you must visit the homes and other buildings that are a part of this exciting event.

Homeowners and building managers will be on hand to describe their green building features and answer questions. Members of the public can learn basic principles of green building, such as designing for solar heating (“passive solar”), energy-efficient building techniques such as super-insulation and air sealing, safe indoor air quality, and resource-efficient and healthy building materials.

Many of the buildings will demonstrate how solar hot water is collected and stored, how photovoltaics can be placed on or integrated into the shell of a building to produce electricity, and how wind can be used to generate power. Many are EPA Energy Star certified or LEED certified.

To search the online database of sites that will be on the tour visit

Hope to see you at one of the many events!

Green Buildings Open House Project Manager
