Available Heat Pump Rebates for BC Residents
Federal Greener Homes Grant:
Up to $5,000 The federal government’s Greener Homes Grant provides between $2,500 and $5,000 toward heat pump installations. The maximum grant is for a qualifying “cold climate heat pump” that can meet your home’s heating needs even at temperatures well below freezing. The $2,500 and $4,000 rebates have slightly lower efficiency requirements.
CleanBC and BC Hydro rebates:
Save up to $6,000 more. Systems that qualify for the Greener Homes Grant will almost always qualify for the $3,000 CleanBC rebate. Plus, if your home uses electricity from BC Hydro, they’ll add another $3,000 to your rebate. That means up to $11,000 in rebates are available, which in some cases can pay for more than half of a heat pump installation.
