Winnipeg — July 10, 2018 — Sycamore Energy is proud to be part of a ground-breaking environmental housing project with Habitat for Humanity Manitoba announced in Winnipeg.
Sycamore is providing the solar power for 5 net-zero Habitat homes being built on Logan Avenue. Net-zero means a house that produces as much energy as it consumes.
“We are excited to be involved in this project and happy to announce that we have donated the labour to install these systems on the net-zero homes,” Sycamore President and CEO Justin Phillips said at a sod-turning ceremony Tuesday. “And as a further demonstration of our support for the incredible work of Habitat for Humanity, Sycamore has donated 100 per cent of the product and labour for the 5th home.”
The homes are built to be extremely energy efficient, with solar panels on the roofs providing all the electricity they’ll need – meaning no Hydro bills for the homeowners.
“It’s one of the best because it starts with the solar panels , like net-zero, and we can call it ours, our home,” says Merlyn Laudato, who will be one of the new home owners once the project is complete.
The project will be “the largest cluster of net-zero homes ever built in Manitoba in any price range,” says Habitat for Humanity Manitoba CEO Sandy Hopkins.
