How to Build a Net Zero Carbon Dream Home!

Who says making your home net zero means you have to make compromises?!

In this very special episode Fully Charged’s Dan visits Karen and Brent Mooder who have built a DREAM Net Zero Carbon Home complete with solar, a heat pump, hot tub and sauna!

The Mooders have taken full advantage of British Columbia’s innovative housing policies, including the Stepcode to ensure their house could be as efficient as possible.

Special thanks to BC Hydro for introducing us to Karen and Brent! For more home episodes, check out our Everything Electric Show
