The Canadian Home Builders’ Association of PEI (CHBA-PEI), in partnership with efficiencyPEI, has announced that R-2000/Energy Star Builder Training will be offered to PEI builders at the end of January.

R-2000 is a voluntary standard developed by Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) in collaboration with Canada’s residential construction industry. R-2000 promotes the use of affordable, energy-efficient building practices and techniques, clean air features, and other measures to help protect the environment. Certified R-2000 homes are on average fifty percent more energy-efficient than typical new homes.

The 4-day training will be held virtually, in line with current guidelines from CPHO. Training will be held from Monday, January 31–Thursday, February 3, 2022. There is a cost to participate, with the majority of the training cost sponsored by efficiencyPEI.
