ABOUT THE HPSC
Home performance is a holistic approach to identifying and addressing energy-efficiency, comfort, health and safety related issues in order to make a home perform better. In British Columbia, over the last 25+ years, there have been a number of “Energy-Efficiency Programs” offered by various levels of government and utilities to support home performance. However, for various reasons these programs have not resulted in creating consistent and long-term profitable business opportunities for contractors and suppliers.
The Home Performance Stakeholder Council is a not-for-profit society that represents the residential interests as it relates to energy-efficiency and conservation.
Serve as the lead industry facilitators to increase the supply and demand for BC contractors to deliver quality, affordable services for consumers that focus on whole-home performance.
To work together with BC’s home improvement industry sectors to develop and grow the home performance industry into a sustainable and profitable market segment that delivers products and services to:
- Lower utility bills through reducing energy use
- Improve home comfort and building durability
- Reduce environmental impact
- Improve air quality, health and safety
BC Hydro, FortisBC and the Ministry of Energy, Mines & Low Carbon Innovation have supported the creation of the Home Performance Stakeholder Council with a primary goal to determine what government, utilities and other key industry players can do to create a more sustainable home performance industry in British Columbia.
