E-1.1, r. 1 - Regulation respecting energy conservation in new buildings

Full text
74. Except for doors, windows, skylights and other closures, the thermal resistance of each building component, not taking into account framing or furring, situated in a municipality in one of the zones mentioned in Schedule 2 shall comply with the values prescribed in the table below for that zone.
A building situated elsewhere than in a municipality listed in Schedule 2 is included in the same zone as the nearest municipality mentioned. If there is more than one municipality situated equidistant from the municipality where the building is located, it is included in the zone of the municipality with the most stringent requirements.
This section does not apply to those parts of building enclosures made with materials designed to collect and store solar energy, on the condition that their use does not increase the building energy requirements during winter compared with building components built in conformity with the requirements of this section.
