7 CANADA MORTGAGE AND HOUSING CORPORATION EQuilibrium Housing InSight Completed Titles Avalon Discovery 3 Passive Solar Design Now House Exterior Envelope Retrofit Riverdale NetZero Deep Wall System Active Solar Thermal System Passive Solar Design

8 CANADA MORTGAGE AND HOUSING CORPORATION EQuilibrium Housing InSight Completed Titles - New Avalon Discovery 3 Active Solar Heating Slab-on-grade Foundation and Finished Attic Space Double Structural Insulated Panel Walls Integrated Photovoltaic System ÉcoTerra Passive Solar Design

9 The EQ houses are performing well Householders use more electricity than predicted by developers and energy modellers PV output meets predictions in summer but is less than predicted in winter Monitoring Results – General Trends

10 Predictions generally made using RETScreen Many assumptions in that process Measured PV output is generally close in summer but lower in the darker six months Shading, snow effects are likely culprits PV output: predicted vs measured

12 Avalon Discovery III

13 Riverdale West

14

15 From January 2010 through mid-July: Avalon with an 8.2 kW system produced about 5600 kWh CHESS with a 6.7 kW system produced about 6000 kWh Predictive programs could not deal with the subtleties of shading Real vs predicted PV

16 Avalon Discovery 3 - March 21 st Shadow Patterns

17 Shading study seems accurate for Avalon

18 CHESS system has no shading

19 Electrical consumption for lights and appliances

20 Pa Airtightness test data
