100% Fossil Free Home gets Amazing Reviews!

Meet the Kennys, the first family to put EcoPlus Home to the test for 12 months in Bathhurst, New Brunswick.
The six-member Kenny family spent 12 months (2009-2010) in the Test House during which time it generated and conserved the energy they needed to live comfortably through the area’s seasonal temperature extremes.
In 2010, Efficiency New Brunswick gave the Bathurst Test House an EnerGuide rating of 96, the highest they had ever given.

They are affordable as well as efficient. A certified EcoPlusHome represents a potential 15-20% increase in construction costs compared to a conventional built-to-code home, the real savings it generates can add up to thousands of dollars each year, based on current energy prices. But the true savings is what you give back to the environment by reducing your carbon footprint.
