Green Building Open House - An Energy Retrofit Project in Meadowood

Description:

This new house underwent a comprehensive energy retrofit shortly after the owners moved in. A solar hot water system was added to supply pre-heated water to supplement hot water demand. An 8.58 kW solar system (33 panels) was installed to help meet electricity demand. More recently, the owners installed a 1,950 gallon cistern and three 400-litre rain barrels to collect rain water for a vegetable garden. The house is also artistically and thoughtfully fitted out with reusable and natural materials that are repurposed as decorations or functional items ranging from cabinet handles to furniture pieces.

More information about the 2015 Green Building Series is available online here.
