Energy Efficiency Rules Adopted in the Yukon
The Yukon has adopted energy efficiency rules for new homes and renovations, according to the Yukon News.
Section 9.36 of Canada’s National Building Code now requires an EnerGuide efficiency rating of 78 out of 100. The story says that most homes in the territory won’t be impacted since Whitehorse has a bylaw that exceeds that rating by 4 points and many homes outside the city also exceed 78. The rating is determined by a number of variables, including wall and ceiling insulation and heat loss through doors and windows, the story said. There are no specific standards for those elements – but they must cumulatively meet the total.
Ameresco Canada late last year signed a $15.5 million contract to work on 26 buildings on the Symons andTraill College campuses of Trent University in Peterborough, Ontario.
