The 2019 CHEO Dream Home is Going Solar!
Switch Energy has partnered up with Minto Communities in making the 2019 CHEO Dream of a Lifetime Home fully net-zero! The 4500+ square foot house will be installed with a rooftop solar panel system, allowing it to be completely powered by solar energy all year round. We are incredibly proud to be part of such a meaningful project within the Ottawa community.
Why Net Zero ?
As a net-zero home powered by solar energy, the CHEO Dream Home will produce as much clean energy as it consumes. The home will be up to 80 percent more energy efficient than a typical household and will provide exceptional value and comfort to the home owner:
- The home owner will be protected against future increases in electricity costs and save thousands of dollars on utility bills over time.
- The home owner will no longer have to worry about using energy during peak use hours.
- Net-zero homes are built with higher standards than conventional homes. This means that the home owner will get to enjoy a home that is more durable and better insulated.
- A net-zero home will also minimize the household’s environmental footprint, allowing the home owner to do their part in fighting against climate change.
CHEO Dream of a Lifetime Home
The Dream Home is the grand prize for the CHEO Foundation’s annual lottery. In addition to this, the grand prize also consists of other prizes, such as a car, cash and many others. The public can participate and enter the lottery by purchasing tickets – proceeds from ticket sales go directly to help support the CHEO Foundation.
Net-zero homes are at the forefront of environmental sustainability. To learn more about the CHEO Dream of a Lifetime Home lottery, click here. To learn more about net-zero homes in Canada, click here.
