Edmonton Home Tour 2022

The 2022 Eco-Solar Home Tour in Edmonton is over for this year. Thanks to all the home owners 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 of sponsor's page for more details. This year we had 14 homes sign up in the Edmonton 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.
