The first office ever to exist off the electrical grid in Edmonton is open for business.
Effect Home Builders, a Holmes Approved Homes builder, turned an old apartment building into one of the most energy efficient office buildings in the city.
“This project is very exciting as it’s much more than a renovation,” said Les Wold, managing partner at Effect Home Builders.
Using new technology the builder was able to reduce the buildings’ CO2 emissions by 80 percent.
“It enhances the neighbourhood and showcases an innovative way to generate all power on site while drastically reducing greenhouse gas emissions,” Wold said.
