Zero Energy Building Open House During this year's GreenBuilt Home Tour on July 26 and 27 you'll have the opportunity to see an emerging trend of zero-energy or zero energy ready homes throughout Illinois, including in Chatham just west of Springfield. Increasingly, these new and existing homes use smart design to eliminate the need for natural gas fossil fuels, and with the addition of solar photovoltaics they are showing Illinois' new stock of zero energy building. Showcase homes include the Net Positive Home in Chicago, Net Zero on Race, All Electric Greywater in Oak Park, Adaptation House in River Forest, Uber Haus in Geneva, Wesley Chapel in Chatham, and Smart Haus in Northbrook. To see inside these homes and discover what makes a home high-performance, low-energy, and ultra-comfortable, visit this year’s GreenBuilt Home Tour, go to www.greenbuilthometour.org. Tickets are just $20 when using coupon code GREEN.
