Net Zero Homes training is coming to Northern Colorado on May 1.

The Colorado Green Building Guild, a trade organization focused on advancing the craft of sustainable building in Colorado, has announced a new partnership with the U.S. Department of Energy to provide information on how to successfully build net zero-energy ready homes in today’s housing market.

The Guild is collaborating with the Northern Colorado Rebuilding Network and the Colorado Renewable Energy Society to bring this training to the Bellvue Grange on May 1 from 1 to 5 p.m.

Those who are part of NoCo Rebuilding Network may attend at no charge. Guild and CRES members can attend for $50 and non-members can attend for $75.

This builder-focused training session will cover the business advantages of high-performance building and marketing to consumers. It will also teach participants how to gain recognition through a DOE Challenge Home.

In addition, the four-hour course qualifies for Continuing Education credits for the American Institute of Architects.

“Anyone in the building sector interested in new construction projects should attend,” says Julie Herman, Executive Director of the Guild. “These trainings will help position contractors ahead of the curve and give them a marketing edge as we see the building sector start to pick up.”
