CVRD to Partner with CleanBC on Municipal Top-Up Rebate Program

The Comox Valley Regional District (CVRD) is excited to be participating in the CleanBC Municipal Top-Up Program for homeowners in Electoral Areas A, B, and C (including Hornby and Denman Islands) who are completing electrical panel upgrades or installing an electric heat pump.

“The Municipal Top-Up Program will provide homeowners with access to additional rebates in an effort to reduce greenhouse gas emissions at their home or property,” explains Edwin Grieve, Electoral Areas Services Committee Chair. “Climate change continues to have a lasting impact on our community and it’s important to provide funding support on various electrical upgrades and heating options.”

The rebate program will provide $350 for electrical heat pumps and $500 for electrical panel upgrades to eligible electoral area residents. Electrical panel rebates are for 100, 200, or 400 amp service upgrades.

These rebates support the CVRD’s Residential Emissions Reduction Action Plan (RERAP). Eligible applicants will be automatically assessed for the top-up rebates when they apply for the CleanBC Better Homes Rebate.
