The Los Alamos Department of Public Utilities will host the Energy Efficiency Home Tour to highlight real-world applications to reduce energy consumption and improve all-season comfort in the home.
Los Alamos County homeowners will open the doors to share their homes and the energy-efficient design features and upgrades that have worked for them between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Oct. 15.
Homes featured on the tour in the Los Alamos town site and White Rock neighborhoods incorporate passive solar design, energy-efficient building materials, energy-efficient windows and doors, thermal insulation, water-and-energy-conserving garden designs and irrigation systems, photovoltaic systems, and more.
Owners have been able to greatly reduce electric and natural gas bills.
