On September 29, 2015 the CHBA launched a Pilot of the Association’s Net Zero Energy (NZE) Labelling Program – continuing CHBA’s long history in leading energy efficiency in residential construction. The Program will provide the industry with a clearly defined yet rigorous 2-tiered (NZE and NZE Ready) technical standard that will distinguish and recognize builders and renovators and their NZE homes. To encourage high levels of industry adoption (even with production builders) the program is striving to keep the administrative process simplified. The Pilot will be used to validate both administrative as well as technical details prior to launching “version 1” of the Program in 2016.
Builder and renovator members who want to be part of this exciting development will take training as part of the qualification process. This will help get the necessary knowledge in to the hands of early adopters and accelerate the capacity of builders and renovators to achieve NZE.
