Net Zero / Net Zero ready Version 1

The Net Zero Energy Labelling Program is being developed by the Canadian Home Builder’s Association (CHBA) to provide a third-party certification for Net Zero Energy (NZE) and Net Zero Ready (NZEr) qualified homes. A Net Zero Energy home is designed, modeled and constructed to produce as much energy as it consumes on an annual basis. A Net Zero Ready home is built to the same standards, with no renewables installed.
