Province launches new Energy Efficiency Guide for builders, consumers

The Office of Climate Change and Energy Efficiency launched a new guide to help homeowners and homebuilders incorporate energy efficiency into the construction and renovation of homes and small buildings. The new Guide to Building Energy Efficient Homes and Small Buildings was released at the annual general meeting of the Canadian Association of Homebuilders – Newfoundland and Labrador in St. John’s.

“The Provincial Government is committed to helping residents increase the energy efficiency of their homes and businesses. Incorporating energy efficiency into construction and renovations saves money for property owners and potentially raises the market value of their properties. It also reduces greenhouse gas emissions and helps tackle climate change.”
– The Honourable Perry Trimper, Minister Responsible for Climate Change and Energy Efficiency

Energy used in houses and buildings accounts for approximately 18 per cent of the total energy consumed in the province (excluding offshore petroleum). The guide will support municipalities, builders, contractors, inspectors and consumers in understanding the benefits of energy efficiency and the energy efficiency requirements of the National Building Code.
