The builder of the province’s very first Net 0 ready home is thrilled with progress in establishing net metering in the province.
Newfoundland Power and Newfoundland and Labrador Hydro have submitted their net metering policy applications to the PUB.
Curtis Mercer is the President of K&P Contracting which specialises in building energy efficient homes.
K&P built the province’s very first R2000 home and boasts the first home in Newfoundland and Labrador that is Net 0 ready. Mercer says that means once the policy is in place, the home is ready to go.
He says all the homeowner has to do is install solar panels and the house will be able to meet its own energy needs.
Natural Resources Minister Siobhan Coady says she’s pleased to see progress being made.
