Home Renovation Rebates (HRR)

Home Renovation Rebate (HRR) Program

These rebates are available pre-retrofit EnerGuide home evaluations completed before September 28, 2018. If you complete a pre-retrofit evaluation or install upgrades on or after September 28, 2018, visit the CleanBC Better Homes and Home Renovation Rebate Programfor available rebates. 

Improve the comfort of your home and reduce your energy bills by implementing energy efficiency upgrades. BC Hydro and FortisBC (the Program Partners) are providing rebates for energy saving upgrades to single family detached homes, mobile homes on a permanent foundation, and side-by-side duplex or row homes in BC that are primarily electrically or gas heated. Homes heated with piped propane supplied by FortisBC are also eligible. 

A summary of the HRR Program is provided below. It is your responsibility to read, understand and meet the eligibility requirements by reviewing the Program’s terms and conditions.

Rebates Available

Refer to the HRR Rebate Table for a complete list of available rebates. Note, that you cannot apply for individual upgrade rebates under the HRR program anymore. 

Rebates for Energy Advisor Supported Upgrades that do require a pre- and post-retrofit EnerGuide home evaluation:

    • Draftproofing - up to $500
    • Bonus Offer - $750 for completing three (3) or more bonus qualifying upgrades, that can be found on page 2 of the HRR rebate table. 
    • Energy Coach Home Evaluation - $150 for having a pre- and post-retrofit EnerGuide home evaluation. 

* If draftproofing work was completed before September 28, 2018 (as determined by the date on the draftproofing invoices and receipts) you can access the individual rebate of up to $500. If the draftproofing work was completed after September 28, 2018, you cannot access the up to $500 draftproofing rebate. However, as long as your pre-retrofit EnerGuide home evaluation occured before September 28, 2018, draftproofing can count as one upgrade towards the $750 Bonus Offer regardless of when the work was completed.
