"Zero energy." Sounds like somebody needs a cup of coffee.
But when it comes to construction, zero energy (also known as "net-zero energy") means a building produces as much renewable energy as it consumes over a year, which is typically half the energy use of standard construction. Green Hammer specializes in designing and building net-zero energy homes and communities. A typical project includes super-insulation, triple-pane windows, advanced ventilation, solar panels, and non-toxic materials.
The goal is create durable buildings that are healthier for people and the planet, says owner Stephen Aiguier. Now that's something to get energized about.
