International Passive House Days: 9-11 November 2012

The International Passive House Association is organizing the 9th annual International Passive House Days, to be held on November 9 - 11 of this year.  Check the iPHA's website to locate participating projects near you.  We will also post information about participating projects here in the Pacific Northwest as we hear about them.  Passive House owners and residents who wish to participate can register their projects with the iPHA here, and please be sure to also notify us at info@phnw.org so that we can publicize them as well - thanks!

Update: The iPHA has now posted a Google Map with the locations of the participating projects. There are currently more Passive House buildings slated for the tour in Oregon than in any other state of the U.S.!  You can get specifics on the participating projects by following the links on the iPHA's embedded Google Map or by listing the projects using a search in the Passive House Database. Simply search by geographic region -- the search results will contain information on the project's participation in the Passive House Days.
