Free home energy audits available

Does your winter home energy bill give you the shivers? Sign up for a home energy audit and learn how to save energy and save money.

Seventy-five home energy audit rebates are available on a first-come, first-served basis for Campbell River residents. The rebates are valued at $150 plus tax and cover the cost of an energy assessment conducted by a certified energy advisor.

“By participating in this program, home owners will learn ways to reduce energy use, add value to their home, and help lower greenhouse gas emissions in Campbell River,” says Coun. Larry Samson.

The Energy Rebate Program is a key step in implementing the City’s Community Energy and Emissions Plan. Buildings represent approximately 51 per cent of energy use and 23 per cent of Campbell River’s greenhouse gas emissions.

Residents interested in participating in the rebate program can access a rebate number and voucher form from the City of Campbell River.
