This Tiny Green Home is making a BIG difference!

Visitors to Otronicon on February 12-15 will see green when they check out our Tiny Green Home, a hands-on experience to increase sustainability education and awareness in Central Florida. Built by Orlando Utilities Commission, the City of Orlando and Orlando Science Center, the 200-square-foot home will premiere to the public during Otronicon and be available for scheduled tours throughout the event.

This diminutive abode offers a hands-on experience through interactive displays that educate visitors on energy and water conservation measures, sustainability rebates, vehicle electrification, renewables, composting, food gardens and other efficiency methods. It includes a functioning roof-top solar array and a rain barrel to collect and conserve water, among other green features visitors can add to their own homes.

Part of the American Cities Climate Challenge grant, the $100,000 project is funded equally by OUC and the City, along with a $15,000 grant from The Natural Resources Defense Council. 

The Tiny Green Home, a partnership between OUC, the City of Orlando and Orlando Science Center, is an educational resource showcasing the benefits of:

  1. Energy and water conservation
  2. Renewable energy
  3. Sustainability rebates
  4. Vehicle electrification,
  5. Composting
  6. Growing your own food
  7. Sustainability programs from OUC, the City, and OSC.

Don’t miss the opportunity to learn this tiny home’s big message about sustainability. Tours will be scheduled during Otronicon and included with event admission. Following Otronicon, The Tiny Green Home will be available again for touring during Spring Break, March 12-21.
