The Harmony House Project

Sustainability Television has a new series online of the Harmony House Project; a house located in Britsh Colombia, Canada.

The Harmony House is a winning entry in the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation EQuilibrium™ Housing Initiative. This net-zero home will produce as much energy as it uses on an annual basis - from renewable sources.

This project incorporates low toxicity interior finishes, materials with recycled content, foam insulations using non ozone depleting expanding agents, water conservation and rain water harvesting. These measures lower environmental impact, conserve resources and create a healthy indoor environment for the occupants.

This is the only Equilibrium home to be constructed on the West Coast and will be the first zero carbon building in British Columbia; meaning it will emit no greenhouse gases from heating, cooling, hot water and the use of electrical appliances.
