Net Zero: What does this mean?

Net zero means that a home has an annual net energy consumption of zero; it uses the same amount of energy as it generates. Energy consumption is based on heating and cooling a home, heating water, and operating the home's lights, appliances, and mechanical devices.

The VerEco Home saves energy by reducing the amount of energy the home requires, reusing waste and excess energy, and replacing conventional energy sources with alternatives.

 

About the VerEco Home

Canada's first Net Zero Home Exhibit is located at Saskatoon's Western Development Museum.

The home is built by VerEco Homes Inc. in partnership with WSE Technologies.
