Feds update standard for energy-efficient homes
The federal government has updated the R-2000 standard for energy efficiencies in new homes, aiming to lower Canadians’ energy costs while reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
“Our Government is committed to new standards that promote energy efficiency, save Canadians money, create jobs and strengthen the economy,” said Minister of State Gordon O’Connor at the announcement last week.
“Today’s announcement is the result of our successful collaboration with industry to continually improve residential building standards.”
