London, Ontario's Smartest Townhomes Practice Sustainable Living
Sifton's West 5 community points rental housing in an exciting new direction.
“It’s Ontario’s first net-zero community,” says Brandi McIlvenny, Director, Residential Rentals, left, with Kerilee White, Leasing Professional. As a whole, West 5 plans to generate all of the power it uses in a year. It won’t be “off the grid” but will share power generated with the grid. Each unit includes stainless energy-efficient Whirlpool appliances supplied by London Major Appliances.
There’s a buzz about living in a smart house. “It is a unique tenant moving into these places,” observes Sifton’s Neil Carter, Director, Commercial Construction. “Our residents are very interested in technology and doing something good for the planet.”
