Homebuyers say they are willing to pay thousands of dollars more for energy efficiency features in their new house, but less than half say they were on offer from their builder, according to a recent survey.

The average Ottawa or Greater Toronto Area homebuyer said they were willing to pay an additional $13,183 for an energy efficient home, up 34 per cent from last year, according to a survey released this week by EnerQuality, a certification, training and consulting organization for the homebuilding industry.
