REMO ZACCAGNA, THE CHRONICLE HERALD.
With homeowners demanding energy-efficient and environmentally friendly homes, proponents of a national pilot project seek to take that concept one step further.
Provident Developments, a Bedford company, is one of five Canadian builders chosen to take part in a national initiative to build 25 certified net-zero energy homes in four provinces, including Nova Scotia.
“We had already been involved in other energy-saving projects, so this was a natural progression,” company president John Greenough said Monday in Bedford.
A net-zero home is built in such a way that, in the long run, it will generate as much energy as it consumes, reducing a homeowner’s carbon footprint and utility bills.
The first such home was unveiled Monday afternoon at 70 Aspenhill Court in Bedford.
