Edmonton Home Tour 2024

The 2024 Eco-Solar Home Tour in Edmonton is over for this year.

Thanks to all the homeowners and volunteers that made another successful tour possible! The addresses of the homes have been removed; however, the detailed site sheets will remain on this web page until we compile the homes of the 2025 tour sometime in February or March.

Here are pictures of the 2024 Edmonton Tour.

If you have additional questions about energy efficient homes then we encourage you to call our sponsors and ask them about the information that they have available on energy efficient homes. Check out our sponsor's page for more details. This year we had 15 homes sign up in the Edmonton area. We will leave the write-ups here until we get the homes for the 2025 tour set up some time around March of 2025.

Details of Site #10

Yes! Commercial buildings can be energy-efficient too. This 3,000 m2 office and warehouse has 15 geothermal heat pumps, 248 kW of solar, and many efficient features on its way to net-zero energy.
Details of Site #3
Site 11 11 Prince Charles Retrofit Home

This 1948 home is getting a new, insulated exterior and a larger second floor as part of the journey to net-zero. See how the homeowners took advantage of Greener Homes and CEIP financing for their upgrades.
Details of Site #11
Site 4 4 Brookside NNZ Retrofit Home

A deep energy retrofit of a 1970's home makes the home efficient but the permaculture garden in front is the feature here. Come and see how they planned and developed their food forest.
Details of Site #4
Site 12 12 Blatchford Energy Centre

This geothermal facility pulls heat from 570 boreholes to provide warmed water to the homes in Blatchford. Homes tap into this renewable "utility" to heat their homes and hot water.

A panelized deep energy retrofit of a 1950's home to get to Net-Zero Ready (NZR). See the details of the insulating wall panels and roof and the bunnies in the front yard that act as lawnmowers.

Site 7 7 Highlands NZE Retrofit Home

This is the first single detached home in Canada to use a Dutch prefabricated wall insulation system to get a 1950's home to NZE. It's like custom knitting an R25 sweater for an old house!
Details of Site #7
