Central Saanich is moving forward with energy efficient new construction via the BC Energy Step Code!

What is the BC Energy Step Code? The Step Code is a provincial regulation enabling local governments to phase in levels, or steps, of increased energy efficient construction.

How is Central Saanich referencing the Step Code? Beginning January 2020, all new residential construction (and large new commercial buildings) will be required to meet the first level, Step 1. For those properties that have been rezoned, Council requires compliance with a higher step, Step 3.
