Solar-powered house

  • Print

A solar-powered house is being built south of Portage la Prarie by Will and Bev Eert. They are retired and building their self-sufficient home into a hill that shields the house from north west winds and keeps the home cool in the summer.

KEN GIGLIOTTI / WINNIPEG FREE PRESS

Solar home built by Will and Bev Eert; the exterior is complete, but not rear of the house built into hill, and two solar panels in front of the house. The hill shields the house from north-west winds and keeps the home cool in the summer. They are also using 6x8 Douglas Fir beams inside the house, which is located just south of Portage la Prairie.
