According to the score card, B.C.'s provincial government is charting progress toward 2032, when all new builds will have to be net-zero energy ready and produce as much clean energy as they consume.
In an effort to address energy efficiency, and by extension climate change, Newfoundland recently expanded its home energy savings program, doubling in the last budget year to $2 million in grants to low income households for insulation, hat pumps and other energy efficiency upgrades.

But it says there's still room for improvement when it comes to electricity savings, an area where B.C. is dropping compared with other provinces. (Source: Efficiency Canada, Canadian Press, 20 Nov., 2019)
