Calgary Home Tour 2022

Click here to see pictures of the 2022 Calgary tour.

The 2022 Eco-Solar Home Tour in Calgary 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 2023 tour sometime in February or March.

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 9 homes sign up in the Calgary area. We will leave the write-ups here until we get the homes for the 2023 tour set up some time around March of 2023.

Can't visit on tour day? See our 2021 virtual tour videos on the Videos and Definitions page.
