The City of Campbell River (the City) is partnering with the Province again to offer home energy improvement incentives. Campbell River homeowners can benefit from municipal top-up rebates when switching from a fossil fuel (oil, natural gas, or propane) heating system to an electric air source heat pump. A $350 top-up is being offered by the City of Campbell River, in addition to rebates currently available through the CleanBC Better Homes Program and BC Hydro.
Heat pumps are the most energy-efficient, climate-friendly heating systems available in BC and provide the bonus of central AC for those warm nights, without purchasing and maintaining a separate system.
Once again, the City is providing $15,000 in funding for the program from the Climate Action Reserve Fund. The program is being administered by the BC Government and rebates will be approved on a first-come, first-served basis while funding lasts. Since the relaunch of the program last July, several residents have accessed the grant funding to make the switch.
