The region’s first home that produces more electricity than it needs has been unveiled in Lakeshore.

BK Cornerstone built the 2600 sq ft net-zero home in four months on Francis Cres.

President Ben Klundert it’s equipped with state-of-the-art energy efficiency.

“It’s got very, very high levels of insulation. Very air tight. A nesting system that can be controlled by your phone,” he says. “You go to the back and they’re filled with solar. You go into the basement, into the mechanical room and it’s just like wow, this is pretty cool.”

Energy efficient heating and cooling, solar panels, triple pane windows, smart electronics are just some of the home’s features.

The nearest net-zero home is in London.
