Nova Scotia to offer incentives for high-performance home construction
By Jillian MorganGreen Technology
Efficiency Nova Scotia has launched a pilot program aimed at increasing the number of new high-performance homes constructed in the province.
The High Performance Home Plan Pilot will offer a $1000 incentive paid to eligible participants who complete an Initial Design Evaluation under the organization’s New Home Construction Program.
“The initial goal is to see 100 home plans go through the pilot by March 2020,” said Natasha Brooks, program manager.
Participants who complete the pilot are also eligible for rebates up to $7000 under the New Home Construction Program.
To be eligible, homes must be electrically heated and registered before or within 30 days of receiving building permits. www.efficiencyns.ca/newhomes
