Super Efficient New Construction

​Advancing energy-efficient construction

As a leading provider of energy efficiency programs, FortisBC is proud to partner with the Ministry of Energy, Mines and Natural Gas on the Super Efficient New Construction (SENC) initiative. This initiative supports the construction of super-efficient buildings (e.g. single family homes, townhomes and duplexes/triplexes) that use significantly less energy than conventional structures. Through SENC, funding is provided towards the premium capital costs of construction to help participants achieve the program’s rigorous energy efficiency standards.

Super-efficient homes must:

To participate in the SENC initiative, projects must also include a plan to help promote the project and educate the public on its energy efficiency features.
