Hydro bills may be a fact of life but Laval developer Jean-Francois Voyer is hoping to change that.
His company, Construction Voyer, recently completed construction on a six-unit condo called Net Zero Energy.
“The principle behind Net Zero is to be able to produce as much energy inside the building or on the building itself as much as the whole building will consume throughtout the year,” he said.
The condo isn’t entirely self-sufficient. It’s connected to the Hydro grid to make up for less sunlight during the winter months.
