SASKATOON – A Saskatoon home had to use virtually no power to keep the heat on despite a cold snap that resulted in record-breaking energy usage across the province.

“At minus 35 [degrees Celsius], our furnace did not have to run over those last two warm days,” says Murray Guy, an engineer who designed and built his ‘net zero’ house in the city’s North Park neighbourhood.

“Our goal in a year is to produce as much energy as we use."
