In 2014, this model home was among the first residential retrofit projects certified Platinum under the LEED Canada for Homes (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) program. After a gut job, renovation, the century old home saw its energy consumption reduced by 86%.
Environmental charity REEP Green Solutions renovated and maintains the house to inspire action at your home by showcasing sustainable home technology such as a grey water system, solar power, geothermal heating, stormwater management techniques and insulation options.
Staff, volunteers and displays are available to help you learn about the house and how you might benefit from your own energy upgrades.
