Description: A new side-by-side condominium duplex in the downtown Riverdale neighborhood of Edmonton, Alberta boasts one of the first residential building-integrated solar heating systems in Canada. The Riverdale NetZero Project was designed as part of the CMHC EQuilibrium demonstration home program. Its highly efficient solar system integrates the collectors directly into the building membrane, just like a window or a skylight, offering more flexibility in home design than more conventional solar panels. "Building integrated solar heating is the newest and most advanced solar heating technology available in Canada," says Joe Thwaites, president of Taylor Munro Energy Systems of Vancouver, which is responsible for the building's mechanical and solar thermal systems.
