Each year ENERGY STAR Canada recognizes businesses and organizations for their commitment to building a healthier, more energy-resilient future for Canadians through the provision and promotion of the brand.
The ENERGY STAR Canada Builder of the Year Awards recognize Canadian new home builders that demonstrate excellence and best practices in the ENERGY STAR for New Homes (ESNH) program. Winners are selected based upon activities that advance market transformation towards improved energy efficiency in Canada. Most recently the recipient of this Award in 2020, Terra View Homes continues to exemplify excellence and innovation in the green building industry, demonstrated through yet another year of recognition.
Terra View Homes is an active promoter of ESNH, Net Zero Energy (NZE) housing and green building practices. One of the first area home builders to exclusively build ESNH homes beginning in 2006, the green builder incorporates the key elements of ESNH in every new home they build. In the last two years, Terra View added 34 ESNH homes to its new home portfolio — with a commitment to energy efficiency improvements beyond the ESNH Standard. The builder has achieved completion on 71 Net Zero and Net Zero Ready homes to date as it continues work on building more Net Zero Ready homes in Guelph at its Hart Village and NiMa Trails developments.
“This award demonstrates not only our commitment as a builder to the ENERGY STAR for New Homes program and sustainable home development, but also our passion towards helping our homeowners use less energy, diminish their carbon footprints and contribute directly to the fight against climate change,” said Andrew Lambden, founder and CEO of Terra View Homes. “It is an honour to be recognized for our commitment to environmentally conscious and energy efficient building across the country.”
“Enhancing energy efficiency is key to working towards our ambitious climate goals, while creating sustainable jobs for cleaner growth and a greener, more energy-efficient future. This year’s ENERGY STAR Canada Award recipients are ambassadors of energy efficiency and examples of the value of investing in smart energy choices.” said the Honourable Jonathan Wilkinson, Minister of Natural Resources. “Congratulations to Terra View Homes in Guelph, Ontario, as the recipient of the 2022 ENERGY STAR Canada award for New Homes Builder of the Year – Small size.”
