For Home Builders

The ENERGY STAR® for New Homes Standard is promoted by the Office of Energy Efficiency (OEE) of Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) to encourage construction of housing that is more energy efficient than homes built to the current Ontario Building Code. This translates into reduced energy costs for homeowners.
