About the Net-Zero Energy Home Coalition
Established in 2004 by a group of forward-looking homebuilders and
developers, the Net-Zero Energy Home Coalition (www.netzeroenergyhome.ca)
promotes the benefits of more efficient use of zero or very low impact
resources. Resulting in cleaner air and healthier homes for homeowners,
net-zero energy homes also protect the climate and generate economic
opportunities for the manufacturing of energy efficient technologies and
