National Tour of Solar Homes – The Westbrook House (10/4/08)

Posted by youngsierrans on August 17, 2008

10/13/08 Update: Photos of our day with Paul at his home are available on our Flickr photo site.

Please join us for a guided tour of the Westbrook House as part of the ASES National Tour of Solar Homes. The house is a 2713 square foot passive solar, energy efficient house designed by Paul and Elena Westbrook. Completed in 1996 in Fairview, Texas (near Dallas), the house has been a model of energy and resource efficiency. The all-electric home has an average monthly electric bill of $69 and the highest ever was <$150 (despite recent spikes in energy prices). These energy savings amount to about a $1,300/year savings over a typical home of the same size.

Date: Saturday – October 4th, 2008

Time: Young Sierrans Tour – 10:00 AM. The Westbrook House will be open to the public all day as part of the National Solar Tour.

More Info: Visit the Westbrook House (website) features and technical information (utility data, design process, etc.).

To Participate with the Young Sierrans: Please RSVP to the youngsierrans email address or to the Evite, which will be sent a few weeks prior to the tour. We may go out to lunch following the tour.
