  • Saturday, April 16:
    • OPEN HOUSE: Saturday, 4/16, 1 – 4 PM: Wayland architect and retrofit specialist Doug Sacra will show the solar photovoltaic canopy system in his garden, as well as the new attic insulating in his 1904 attic, plus the new system of ducted air to air heat pumps that serve each room so they all have individual control and are very efficient. If you have an older house and are looking to retrofit, this is the open house for you! Also featured is sustainable landscaping, replacing the worst areas where grass never grew well (boy, do we know those!). ~ and, at the same time and within walking/biking distance ~
    • OPEN HOUSE: Saturday, 4/16, 1 – 4 PM: Tour the brand-new Briber-Pollitt passive house on 113 Concord Road with the builder. The systems, eye for detail and efficiency of this house will wow you!
  • OPEN HOUSE x 2: Visit Tony and Margie Lee’s solar house at 14 Brooks Road (look for the Earth flag), featuring a solar photovoltaic system that was put in through Solarize 2012 (info here). This system has already paid for itself and is now making money. The Lees will share info on their solar production, the savings on electricity bills, and the SCREC shares, rebates and tax deductions, and you’ll see going solar is not just a good deal for the planet, but for the wallet as well. Then, to assured yourself this is not an exception, stroll on over to their neighbors, who have the same thing going on.
