Sustainable Living


Utility expenses are ever-increasing—coincidentally, as more options to transition off the grid become more plentiful and affordable. The time to think and do differently couldn’t be better. Today, our Homeowners can take control of their energy production as well as security,  while saving as an added benefit.


A broad spectrum of options exists to conserve energy. Whatever the focus, Smart Homes housing has the tools to conserve energy and save money for Tenants and Residents.

Smart Homes include conservation products and planning in our housing, including: Interior and exterior LED Lighting, water reduction, reuse and recycling;  high R-45 insulation; 


Since 2000 began, Ontario has experienced power outages affecting hundreds of thousands from extreme weather patterns and grid overload. As the climate fluctuates, increasing the likelihood of extreme conditions, our reliance on the grid also increases. Now, our Tenants have a quantity of real tools for protection: They can utilize the electricity directly from the roof-top solar panels when the Grid goes down.


Almost all of our products generate solar (sun) energy to charge a home battery bank, making the combination of the two renewable and largely sustainable.

Energy storage is the community’s next frontier. Solutions that will help us generate energy and store it are in development and the race is on.
