July 23 Green Home Tour hosted by Transition Bluffton
Transition Bluffton is hosting a Green Home Tour on Sunday, July 23 from 1-4:00 p.m. Three homes in the Bluffton area are featured. Visitors are encouraged to ride their bikes on the 12-mile route; a prize drawing will be held for those who collect colored tickets at all three locations.
The tour showcases homes in the Bluffton area that emphasize energy efficiency and sustainable building. Tour organizers explain, “It might be through clever design, technology, or just plain hard work, but it’s inspiring to see what others have done.” They also note, “The homeowners on the tour have been gracious enough to open their gates for us, so please be respectful of their properties and the time-frame of the tour.”
The three tour stops are a 1970s home with solar PV and battery backup, a new home with monopole PV arrays, and a home with earth berm, PV solar and passive solar design. Maps will be available at CG Pro Bikes, The Food Store, and the Bluffton Public Library after July 7th.
Transition Bluffton’s mission is to be a catalyst for conversation and sustainable change in the Bluffton community. To learn more about the organization, visit TransitionBluffton.org. To contact the organizers, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
