Austin Cool House Tour | Austin, Texas
Texas Solar Energy Society, txses.org
Featured on the 17th Annual Austin Cool House Tour in June, this home is one of 13 in a neighborhood of modestly sized family homes, 1,395 to 1,761 square feet, built to five-star Austin Green Building standards.
PSW Real Estate built the homes to insure that energy efficiency was achieved prior to the installation of solar.
Lighthouse Solar installed Lumos 255-watt panels on seven of the homes, the arrays ranging in size from 4.08 kW to 5.04 kW.
Because the desire for solar in Austin is so strong, PSW Real Estate has now made solar PV a standard feature on all their houses.
