Home Energy Efficiency Rebates

To reduce energy costs, improve comfort and climate resilience, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions?  The Province of BC, the Federal Government, and the City of Nanaimo have grants and financing programs to help cover costs.  By combining grants, home owners can access up to $11,350 in grants to install a heat pump or improve their home insulation.  Even more financing and grant opportunities are available for income qualified households.

Provincial Grants are also available through Clean BC’s Better Home program.  Provincial rebates of up to $6,000 are available for home heat (heat pumps and more), hot water, windows, doors, air sealing and insulation improvements.  The Province also provides FREE energy saving kits for income qualified households.  More savings, financing and rebate opportunities of up to $33,900 are also available to income qualified households.

By applying to Clean BC Better Homes, Nanaimo residents are also eligible for an automatic $350 heat pump rebate, no separate application is required.

Not sure where to start?  The City of Nanaimo and the Regional District of Nanaimo have launched the Home Energy Navigator Program. This FREE service connects residents with an Energy Concierge, who will be available throughout your retrofit project to answer questions, provide support, and give local, expert advice and guidance to navigate the complex world of home energy retrofits.  This is a great place for residents who want to make their homes more climate friendly or energy efficient but don’t know where to start or just need a hand along the way.  To sign up, visit: Regional District of Nanaimo Offers - Home Energy Navigator
