Are your heating costs sky-high? Does your house get too cold, too hot, and drafty? Do you live in British Columbia and own a home in either Prince Rupert or northern Vancouver Island? We are setting up a free service that will help! An application to join the program is coming soon. In the meantime, sign up for our newsletter to stay informed.
We understand the many obstacles when trying to complete a home renovation that will save you money on energy bills and reduce emissions. That’s why we are launching the Home Energy Savings Program to offer support throughout the renovation process.
Starting in the spring of 2024, we will provide a one-stop-shop that offers free, personalized guidance on making home energy efficiency upgrades in the North Vancouver Island and Prince Rupert regions, including:
- A contact who will help you get started and offer advice based on your situation
- Getting an EnerGuide assessment of your home’s energy performance
- Sourcing and working with contractors
- How to take advantage of available home renovation rebates and loans
- Public information and learning opportunities on upgrade types (e.g., insulation, windows/doors, heat pumps)

Who we are
This program is the result of seven years of work in partnership with communities in central/northern coastal BC. It is led by Ecotrust Canada, funded by Natural Resources Canada, and implemented in collaboration with our community partners. It aims to support and empower households to increase their home energy efficiency and reduce greenhouse gas emissions while also reducing energy costs, energy insecurity, air pollution, and safety hazards.
