LiveSmart BC offers a $500 grant for solar hot water installations. The LiveSmart BC program requires the homeowner to have a pre- and post-retrofit energy evaluation. To qualify for LiveSmart BC funding, retrofits must be completed within 18 months of the pre-retrofit evaluation or before March 31, 2013, whichever comes first. LiveSmart BC funding is provided on a first come, first serve basis.

Vancouver Renewable Energy offers a carbon offset grant for solar hot water systems we install. The grant amount is based on a $36 per tonnes of GHG reduction over the life of your system. This works out to roughly $450 for a typical residential system using a natural gas water heater and much more for larger systems! Please Contact Us for further details.
