New owners moving into first ENERGY STAR® qualified home built using new building guidelines in East Gwillimbury

Friday, October 20th 2006 9:02:33am

(East Gwillimbury, Ontario)  East Gwillimbury is the first municipality in Canada to adopt ENERGY STAR as the standard for all residential developments requiring subdivision agreements, with Terra Brook Homes completing the first ENERGY STAR qualified home using the new guidelines (passed March 20, 2006).  An ENERGY STAR qualified home is approximately 40% more energy efficient than a home built to the Ontario building code minimum.

East Gwillimbury Mayor James R. Young, Corey and Jason DiCarlo of Terra Brook Homes, and Corey McBurney of EnerQuality Corporation, the organization which oversees the ENERGY STAR for New Homes initiative in Ontario, will present house keys to the new home owners.  There will also be a ribbon cutting ceremony, blower door test by John Godden demonstrating the tightness of the home’s building envelope, and a Certificate of Recognition presentation by Chief Energy Conservation Officer Peter Love.
