City of Powell River
The City of Powell River has adopted a phased approach to implementing the BC Energy Step Code. This initiative will allow builders to gain confidence and knowledge while we transition to the Provincial requirement of adhering to Step 3 by January 1, 2022, Step 4 by 2027, and finally Step 5 by 2032.
Effective January 1, 2021, new Part 9 and Part 3 buildings will be designed and constructed to conform to Step 2, or to Step 1 when installing a low-carbon heating system.
