CleanBC’s Better Homes is B.C.’s online hub for homeowners and businesses to access information, rebates and support to reduce energy use and greenhouse gas emissions in new and existing homes and buildings. Energy-efficient buildings are a key part of a cleaner future and they make life more comfortable and affordable.
Better Homes New Construction Program
The CleanBC Better Homes New Construction Program provides rebates up to $15,000 for the construction of new, high-performance, electric homes. Through this program, the Province is supporting the adoption of the BC Energy Step Code and making energy efficient, climate-friendly homes more affordable and accessible for British Columbians.
Choose your rebate pathway
- BC Energy Step Code pathway: build a new home that meets a minimum BC Energy Step code level and uses electric space and water heating systems
- Heat pump pathway: build a new home that uses an electric heat pump for space heating or water heating, regardless of BC Energy Step Code level
Visit the Better Homes website for details on both pathways.
CleanBC’s Better Buildings provides funding and capital incentives to encourage energy-efficient design, construction and renovation of commercial buildings. Energy-efficient buildings are a key part of a cleaner future and they make life more comfortable and affordable.
