Power Down Campbell River

Power Down Campbell River provides information and rebates to homeowners to make their homes more energy efficient and comfortable.

The Rebates

Home Energy Evaluation Rebate

The City of Campbell River offers $150 home energy evaluation rebate to Campbell River residents. The EnerGuide evaluations are completed by a certified energy advisor and provide information on energy retrofits that can improve a home's energy efficiency and decrease energy costs. In order to be eligible, homeowners must complete a pre- and post-retrofit EnerGuide home evaluation. Rebates are available on a first-come, first-served basis while funding lasts.

Watch our short animated films about home energy evaluations, and the EnerGuide home rating system to learn more.

The Province of BC offers between $1200 to $2000 to homeowners who complete the Central System Air Source Heat Pump Incentive Program. Additionally, City of Campbell River incentives of $2000 per home are available to qualifying Municipal residents. This program aims to remove dangerous, unhealthy, and energy intensive oil tanks, while encouraging fuel switching from natural gas heating to air source heat pumps throughout Campbell River. Incentives offered through the City of Campbell River are limited.

In order to qualify for the rebate, the heat pump system requires pre-approval prior to installation, must be installed on or after September 28, 2018, and the application form must be submitted within 6 months of the upgrade invoice date.
