Architecture and engineering students at Carleton University are seizing the opportunity to advance sustainable living with the Northern Nomad, a “Tiny House” project in Ottawa. Tiny Houses are autonomous, off-grid homes that aim to produce a minimal or net-zero carbon footprint. When completed, the Northern Nomad will showcase a variety of renewable technologies, including a 14-panel solar roof and lithium-ion battery for​ storage. Bullfrog Power is a sponsor of the project.
