July 25 Green Home Tour – Nietch Residence – from design through construction every detail was chosen to reinforce their mantra of living lightly. The home’s heating and cooling is supplemented with a solar thermal powered radiant floor heating system. Solar PV was installed to offset their energy bills. A 2,500 gallon tank captures and stores rain water. Attendees receive a great swag bag including info about the local U.S. Green Building Council’s Green Living Member Circle and our sponsor The Sustainability Partnership of Cincinnati.
We’re promoting sustainable home tours in the hope that a community of passionate individuals will come together and create green homes in the Tri-State and help support the local Chapter of the U.S. Green Building Council. Here are the other tours for 2015 and some of the 2016 tours:

This DC Fast Charger is number 7 since January 1 to be installed and is located at the Jeff Wyler Nissan dealership in Fairfield. Kerri Nissan in Florence has another and Nissan with Clean Fuels Ohio gave Cincinnati five dual ChaDeMo/CSS units. The Zoo, Cinci State, Xavier, Findley Market and UC have the five others. AAA has two Level II units by their office on Central Ave. Level II units at the Dunnhumby, 580 garage on Walnut, at the Hilton parking are also online. Of course, Columbus has its own share of units installed and the Tanger Shopping Mall on I-71 by exit 65 or so also dedicated two units a few weeks ago. Thanks to Ray Cardona.
