BC homeowners qualify
for Canada grants

While the BC government’s LiveSmart BC program has allocated its grant budget, BC homeowners can still get LiveSmart BC-subsidized energy assessments and up to $5,000 in tax-free grants from the Canadian government’s ecoENERGY program.

On August 16, 2009, the BC government announced it had fully allocated the $60 million budget for its LiveSmart BC energy renovation grants. These grants are still available to homeowners who had their first energy audit before August 16, 2009.

BC energy assessments

LiveSmart BC, together with local energy providers, continues to subsidize the cost of initial home energy assessment for BC homeowners, regardless of when they have their energy assessment.

Homeowners must have an energy assessment before and after conducting their energy-saving renovations and improvements, if they want to qualify for government grants, rebates and incentives.

Peter Moffatt, President of Building Insight Technologies

Homeowners who have their first energy assessment after August 16, 2009, qualify for up to $5,000 in renovation grants from the Government of Canada’s ecoENERGY Retrofit-Homes program.

“Energy-saving renovations helps save money on home heating and cooling costs,” says Peter Moffatt, president of Building Insight Technologies, a leading energy audit company. “By reducing your home’s energy use, you can make a difference to your budget and to the environment.”

Solar hot water & toilets — BC

BC homeowners also qualify for additional tax-free rebates for installing solar hot water systems and low-flush toilets. These rebates are in addition to the Canadian ecoENERGY grant amounts.
