CHBA NET ZERO/NET ZERO READY HOME BUILDING PROGRAM

Canada’s Net Zero Home Building Program inspires homes that not only take advantage of energy savings from high performance building techniques, but also utilizes energy from renewable sources. Net Zero homes have zero energy impact on the environment, producing as much energy as they consume annually.
