BACKGROUND:       EnerQuality designs and delivers green building
                  programs to the residential construction industry.
                  The ENERGY STAR® for New Homes (ESNH) initiative was
                  developed by
                  Natural Resources Canada to help the public easily
                  identify homes that are approximately 20 per cent
                  more energy efficient than those built to the minimum
                  Ontario Building Code. An ENERGY STAR® qualified home
                  is built by a builder participating in ESNH who
                  incorporates advanced energy-efficient features. To
                  receive the ENERGY STAR®-qualified label, the homes
                  are inspected and verified by Certified Energy
                  Evaluators and labelled by EnerQuality, a licensed
                  Service Organization. The ENERGY STAR® mark is
                  administered and promoted in Canada by Natural
                  Resources Canada.
