From Net Zero to Net Positive

The construction industry has seen an amazing transformation over the past decade in the way of net zero construction.  Metcon has taken "Net Zero" to the next level with it's "Net Positive" construction projects.  Net Positive buildings produce more energy than they consume not only benefiting society and the environment, but providing a sustainable source of revenue for generations to come.
