A program that measures the energy efficiency in materials and methods behind new homes has seen an uptick in activity from Calgary builders this year.
Built Green Canada is an industry-driven program that uses a checklist to measure a home’s level of energy-efficiency. It uses ratings of bronze, silver, gold, or platinum, which is the highest. The checklist includes materials and methods, waste management, water conservation, ventilation and air quality.
