On March 9th, 2016, Canada’s net zero home builders gathered in Ottawa, Ontario to celebrate the wrap up of the NRCan OC ecoEII Net Zero Energy Housing Project.

Owens Corning Canada kindly recognized the Minto Group, along with four other builders across Canada for their hard work over the past four years.

A total of 26 homes were built in four provinces as part of the Net-Zero Energy Housing demonstration project with Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) and Owens Corning Canada.

“With support from Natural Resources Canada’s ecoENERGY Innovation Initiative (ecoEII), five home builders and leading industry suppliers, we have proven that net-zero energy housing can be built using existing technology, at prices that are accessible to the average homebuyer,” stated Salvatore Ciarlo, Technical Services Manager, Owens Corning Canada. “Building entire net-zero communities is a viable, short-term goal—one that we are much closer to as a result of this project’s success.”
