Strata Buildings

Strata Energy Advisor Program - UPDATE!

This program is now fully subscribed. Please visit the Strata Energy Advisor Program website for lots of tips and resources to help stratas make smarter choices and improve building efficiency.

The City of North Vancouver is working with Metro Vancouver and other local municipalities to support the new regional  Strata Energy Advisor program. This program  provides stratas with energy advisors who can visit your building free of charge and recommend opportunities for energy efficient retrofits. The advisor can also support councils through implementation of all changes.

Potential benefits for your building include:

  • Improved quality of life –energy efficient buildings experience reduced noise, fewer cold spots and better air quality
  • Improved resale value – energy efficiency can boost the sale price of a home
  • Less financial risk – proactive building upgrades can reduce the risk of big unforeseen expenses in the future

Program services include:

  • A walk through energy assessment of building common areas (including building envelope, lighting, domestic hot water and HVAC systems);
  • A summary report prepared by the Strata Energy Advisor outlining low-cost opportunities to save energy and reduce GHG emissions in your building along with potential energy upgrade measures requiring a larger capital investment;
  • Ongoing professional support and technical advice during evaluation and implementation of potential upgrades.
