Event description

Description

TO BE RESCHEDULED - Reep Green Solutions' services and events are postponed indefinitely in order to protect us all and comply with social distancing. You are welcome to register for current topics and we will contact you once a new date is chosen. Please call at 519-744-6583 x 222 or email us at outreach@reepgreen.ca if you have any questions.

Come learn about the benefits of managing rain where it falls. Learn how to slow it down, soak it up and clean it up in order to increase flood resilience and keep our waterways clear. We’ll be looking at a few different types of stormwater demonstrations that are on display at the Reep House for Sustainable Living.



This smart-insulated, water-wise century brick home is Reep Green Solution’s LEED® Platinum certified demonstration home and education centre. Reep House has been renovated to showcase energy and water innovations that any home can adopt. Deep retrofits have reduced energy used for space heating and water heating by 86%, reduced costs by 85%, and cut carbon emissions by 54%.
