Ottawa Now – Renewable energy home helps Manotick residents recover from Saturday’s storm


The Manotick Microgrid House has become a source of safety and comfort for local residents following Saturday’s storm. Retired government scientist Art Hunter is offering electricity to help power fridges, freezers, cellphones, electric kettles, and more. It’s a mission that is made possible by his genius home design. As the property harnesses renewable energy from solar panels to create electricity, geothermal energy helps to heat and cool the property. Art further explains this jaw-dropping process on Ottawa Now.
