Poll shows Albertans support more energy efficient homes and an updated provincial building code
Jesse Row, Director, Sustainable Communities Group at the Pembina Institute is available in Calgary for interviews.
Mr. Row can speak to the following points:
• The benefits of energy efficient homes
• Poll results
• How urban and rural Albertans both support increased energy efficiency standards
• How the government of Alberta has a huge opportunity with its pending discussions about revising the province's building code
"Albertans understand and are overwhelmingly supportive of increasing the energy efficiency of our homes. These polling results indicate that there is little political risk in the province updating the building code and putting Alberta on an energy efficiency leadership path," says Jesse Row, a Director at the Pembina Institute.
