NB Power launches New Home Energy Savings Program
NB Power has launched the New Home Energy Savings Program, which aims to help New Bruswickers who are building a new home.
Government says residents could get up to $10,000 in incentives for making their home energy efficient during construction.
The program is performance-based and encourages builders and homebuyers to reduce their energy consumption by going beyond the minimum requirements outlined in the National Building Code.
There are three incentive levels offered through the program, and with each level the efficiency and incentive are higher.
Government says a net zero home represents the highest level and gets the biggest incentive.
