Kithouse - net zero home

Say goodbye to high energy bills and hello to smart living (and design!) at the Kithouse – Net Zero Home! Designed to use little energy for space heating/cooking, hot water, and appliances, this energy-saving space produces as much energy as it consumes over the course of the year with roof-mounted solar panels. The best part? By working together with MB Hydro, the homeowner can offset most or all of their energy costs. Now that's smart living!
