Loans - Grants - Rebates
If you live in British Columbia, there are 2 distinct incentive programs to subsidize your upgrades.
Federal (Canada Greener Homes Grant)
Provincial (Clean BC Better Homes)
Accessing one incentive program does not limit your access to the other incentive program.
You can stack them.
The Canada Greener Homes Loan is a fantastic opportunity to help finance the costs over time.
The grant covers eligible retrofits like home insulation, windows and doors, heat pumps and solar panels as well as resiliency measures.
You must undertake both a pre- and post-retrofit EnerGuide evaluation of your home to be eligible for the grant.
Grants from $125 to $5,000. To get back a portion of your costs for eligible home retrofits.
Up to $600 as a maximum contribution toward the total costs of your pre- and post-retrofit EnerGuide evaluations.
If any of the following conditions applies, you are ineligible for this grant:
I am a landlord and rent my property.
I am a renter.
I already started or completed my retrofits without first receiving an EnerGuide home evaluation.
My home was built less than 6 months ago (but you can apply once your home is at least 6 months old).
I have not moved into the home yet because we are renovating it, before making it my primary residence.
