Green Building Slam

The Northwest EcoBuilding Guild invited builders, architects and contractors of ten outstanding green home building projects to showcase their achievements of impressive energy efficiency in new home construction and retrofits for a large and enthusiastic audience.  Presenters described the technology and systems they used,  such as super insulating building envelopes, triple-paned windows, heat exchange ventilation systems, passive solar design, LED lighting, efficient appliances, FSC wood, regional materials, bicycle storage, cisterns, rain gardens, green roofs, and solar PV installations.  

These are not millionaire luxury homes, but a wide variety of single and multi-family housing where residents will profit from creative targeting of investment for lasting savings in energy costs. One house is powering not only the residence, but also an electric car with solar rooftop panels. In Seattle.
