Whisper Valley Discovery Center Featured in Cool House Tour
Whisper Valley is excited to be a part of the 22nd Annual Cool House Tour, a collaboration of Austin Energy Green Building (AEGB) and the Texas Solar Energy Society (TXSES). The Whisper Valley Discovery Center will be the only amenity center featured during the tour, which takes place Sunday, June 10 from 10 a.m.-6 p.m.
The Cool House Tour is a self-guided tour showcasing homes built to high standards of energy efficiency, comfort and regional design. This year’s tour will showcase seven homes and the Whisper Valley Discovery Center. The homes range in sizes and styles–three are remodels and six of the home have solar photovoltaic (PV) arrays. During the tour, you can ask on-site project team members about how you can achieve your own sustainable “cool house.”
Whisper Valley’s Discovery Center will receive an Austin Energy Green Building 3-Star Rating on May 9. During the Cool House Tour, you can learn all about our sustainable amenity center and community, including the geothermal and solar PV systems that power Whisper Valley homes.
