New Energy Efficient Building Code in Ontario—Best in North America!
This news just in from the Canadian Energy Efficiency Alliance:
CEEA has been an active participant on the Ontario Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing's, Building Code Energy Advisory Council, whose mandate is to provide strategic advice to the Minister on energy conservation issues related to the Building Code and the Building Code Act, 1992. As a member of the council, we are very pleased with the introduction of the new energy efficiency requirements. Effective January 1, 2012, all new homes will have to achieve an EnerGuide 80 rating! These enhancements put Ontario at the very top of the list in North America, and will serve as a model for the rest of Canada.
