How Energy Efficiency Could Benefit You
The need to shift to renewable energy has been a topic of debate for the past two decades. Off late, many countries want to leverage these traditional resources to deliver clean-energy for the future. Canada is one such country in the midst of an energy transformation and has a high possibility of entirely shifting to renewable energy by 2035.
Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) helps Canadians in the field of housing, building, communities, industry, and transportation to recognize the importance of energy efficiency and address climate change. On January 24, 2018, Canada’s Minister of Natural Resources announced a $182-million investment to improve the design, renovation, and construction of homes and buildings.
Energy efficient homes come with many benefits. For starters, these homes typically have better air quality and fewer mold issue. Moreover, updating older homes can significantly increase its comfort level and safety, and even lower your energy bill.
Energy efficiency is the quickest and most cost-effective way to shrink your home’s carbon footprint. Eliminating your carbon emissions will, in turn, reduce global warming. Besides, taking measures to promote energy efficiency could create up to 100,000 new jobs in Canada by 2030.
