Edmonton Forum: An Alternative Path to Near-Zero Housing

January 28, 2015

A room full of Edmonton area builders, designers and others interested in learning more about using the HERS scale to bring your new homes to “near zero”. John Godden facilitated a lively discussion.  So much so, that the Sustainable Housing Foundation is looking to partner with an Alberta builder to complete a “near zero” demonstration home through its affiliated partner Project FutureProof.
