Vancouver’s municipal top-ups and rebates for heat pumps and electric service upgrades are going to be changing soon.
Anyone who lives in Vancouver and is eligible for heat pump and/or electric service upgrade rebates should be aware that customers with invoices dated on or after April 1, 2023, will no longer be eligible for some rebates, or will receive different rebate values.
To qualify for these municipal offers, you must live within the legal boundary of the City of Vancouver.
Why are the City of Vancouver’s municipal top-up offers changing?
In support of its climate action goals, the City of Vancouver is modifying its portfolio of municipal top-up offers to increase support for electrification-related upgrades. Effective April 1, 2023, offers will be available for all-electric heat pumps and heat pump water heaters, with increased support for electric service upgrades when converting from a fossil fuel heating system. This adjustment will provide support to a greater number of homeowners in Vancouver.
Where can I find more information on municipal top-ups available across British Columbia?
Information regarding current municipal offers is available at betterhomesbc.ca/municipal-offers. Customers can also search for municipal offers using the Rebate Search Tool.
Are municipal top-up offers guaranteed?
No. Due to the limited nature of municipal top-up funding, CleanBC cannot guarantee that municipal top-up rebates will be available to homeowners. Homeowners who live in municipalities where the top-ups are fully subscribed will not receive a top-up rebate but are still eligible for the CleanBC Better Homes rebate.
Contact CleanBC Better Homes at email@example.com or the City of Vancouver at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have additional questions.
