Westport, Ontario is a small town about 90 minutes southwest of Ottawa and in the middle of cottage country. Westport is also now home to the first-ever fully Net-Zero community in Canada. Land Ark Homes (also known as Watercolour Westport) is the developer building this community. Each home is having an energy audit completed by our partners at Homesol Building Solutions to make sure the home is Net-Zero ready, and Execon will be installing solar on select homes, but each home built is solar-ready.
Land Ark is building 25 homes per year to make sure the township of Westport can properly economically scale the new community, and there will be a total of 75 homes built. Each of them is extremely energy-efficient and with the lowest monthly hydro bills in the province thanks to their Net-Zero capabilities.
