LiveSmart BC for home owners

This partnership with BC Hydro and FortisBC gives home owners up to $3500 in rebates for energy saving improvements to their homes, including up to:

*   $1200 for exterior wall insulation;

*   $1000 for basement insulation;

*   $600 to install attic insulation; and

*   $400 for air sealling (like weather stripping around doors and draft proofing)

To access rebates, home owners must hire a certified energy advisor to conduct an energy efficiency assesment and provide a customized report showing the home's energy efficiency (EnerGuide) rating and upgrade options by December 31, 2013.

Home owners then choose upgrades and have until March 31, 2014 to make eligible improvements and complete a post-retrofit assessment.  The energy advisor handles all of the paperwork in applying for incentives after the energy assessment.
