Please scroll down for lots of useful information. There are links to industry and environmental journals, relevant dates in the environmental and renewable energy calendar, current debates, a solar PV Feed-in Tariff calculator, green products websites, campaign groups and more. Some of this might be a bit outdated given time considerations and the fact that I don't get paid for doing this, but I do try and keep it as fresh and new as I can so it's still worth checking out.

Canada’s Super Energy Efficient Net Zero Homes

Reid’s Heritage Homes is a Canadian company that is helping to build zero carbon homes (officially called Net Zero Homes) in the country, along with four other housebuilders (Minto, Mattamy Homes, Provident and Construction Voyer) selected by Ministry of Natural Resources Canada (NRCan). The aim is to build homes that produce as much energy as the average user consumes, largely through the incorporation of renewable energy generation technologies such as solar panels and by constructing the home in such a way that it improves the air sealing qualities of the building and increases its overall energy efficiency.
