Enerboss Used in Drake Landing, North America’s First Solar Community

Okotoks, Alberta

Enerboss has been used in North America’s first solar community. This master planned neighbourhood is in the Town of Okotoks, Alberta and has successfully integrated leading energy efficient technologies with a renewable, unlimited energy source - the sun.

The Drake Landing Solar Community (DLSC) is a master planned neighbourhood and is the first of its kind in North America.  DLSC is heated by a district system designed to store abundant solar energy underground during the summer months and distribute the energy to each home for space heating needs during winter months.  Leading technology has been implemented throughout this development and Nu-Air’s Enerboss was the product chosen to manage the heating, cooling and ventilation within each home.

 The resulting system is unprecedented in the World, fulfilling ninety percent of each home’s space heating requirements from solar energy and resulting in dramatically less dependency on limited fossil fuels. The first phase of 52 of these R-2000 standard homes now completed and occupied, developers are now setting their sights on the next phase of this project.
