MYKE THOMAS, CALGARY SUN.
History was made recently in the northeast community of Cityscape as Mattamy Homes completed its first Net Zero Energy (NZE) home.
The home is part of a national project that will almost double the number of NZE homes in Canada, is one of five Mattamy will be constructing in Cityscape by spring 2016 and is the first home in Calgary to receive government recognition of Net Zero Energy performance.
NZE homes are energy-efficient residences that generate as much energy as they consume on an annual basis.
Mattamy’s 1,658 sq.-ft. home features advanced insulation from the Owens CorningTM CodeBord® Air Barrier System, Plygem triple-pane windows, Mitsubishi Cold Climate air source heat pump, Rheem high-efficiency domestic hot water heater, Eyedro real-time energy monitoring system and 40 Solar-Max photovoltaic panels.
