Austin Energy Green Building and the Texas Solar Energy Society (TXSES) have issued a call for Austin-area architects, builders, remodelers, and homeowners to submit unique, sustainably built residences for possible inclusion in the 14th Annual Cool House Tour.

Slated for June 6, 2010, the Cool House Tour aims to showcase the best local examples of sustainable home building, from those that demonstrate now-widely-accepted principles to those that push the limits of building science and building practices to achieve ever-higher levels of performance.

Interested parties must submit applications and signed owners' release forms by Jan. 22, 2010. Visit for more information and to download the necessary forms.
