EnerQuality designs and delivers green building programs to the residential construction industry.
Founded in 1998 as a partnership between the Canadian Energy Efficiency Alliance (CEEA) and the Ontario Home Builders’ Association (OHBA), EnerQuality’s mission is to transform Ontario’s housing into the most energy efficient and sustainable in the world. EnerQuality’s programs are voluntary and market-based. They are designed to encourage and support developers, builders and renovators improve building performance and reduce the environmental impact of housing. EnerQuality partners with local homebuilders associations, governments, utilities, manufacturers, and consultants to bring our programs to market.
