The 24th Annual Cool House Tour is a collaboration between Austin Energy Green Building and the Texas Solar Energy Society (TXSES). This year’s first-ever virtual tour features an urban accessory dwelling, a rural homestead, and an affordable multifamily community. These three properties showcase:

  • Value-driven decisions
  • Climate responsive design
  • Fire-wise construction and landscaping
  • Healthy material selections
  • Energy efficiency strategies
  • Water-saving methods
  • Renewable energy options and more

The tour will highlight both the homes and the teams that made them possible in up-close conversations with owners, architects, and contractors.
