Electrical Code & Grid Challenges for Highly Efficient Homes in Alberta

BILD Alberta’s Accelerate Net Zero Steering Committee identified the Canadian Electrical Code and Alberta’s electrical grid as challenges for industry to build highly efficient and net zero homes, and to continue reducing greenhouse gas emissions. BILD Alberta is working to understand all the associated challenges, including the electrical grids current capacity, demand load calculations, and the affordability of electrification. A document was created by BILD Alberta outlining some of the associated challenges. To receive a copy of the document members can send a request to Rachelle.Patterson@bildalberta.ca.
