Energy Retrofit Grant for First Nation Communities

Dec 13, 2016

The Fraser Basin Council is offering First Nation communities grants for home energy retrofits. 

The grant is for communities who are want to implement their energy efficiency plan. While most renovation grants are for making homes safe and livable, this grant focuses on energy efficiency upgrades. Net-Zero believes that it's make sense to undertake energy retrofits at the same as doing basic renovations. For example, Net-Zero completed an energy retrofit on the Kixpiox Band's Youth Drop In Centre while completing interior renovations. Click here to read about the project.

Energy-Efficient Chalet on Hudson Bay Mountain Built with SIPs

When Jodie and Rob Blackburn decided to build a private chalet on Hudson Bay Mountain, they knew a conventional stick-frame construction was not going to be the most efficient building for their needs. 

“I began to research energy efficiency and affordability and your companies’ product quickly became the front-runner,” says Rob. “We chose Net-Zero Structure’s structural insulated panels (SIPs) for many reasons including ease and speed of erection as well as cost and availability.”

The load capacities of Premier SIPs structures allow for construction without a truss system, making the framing method ideal for cathedral ceiling designs.
