Rebate application

Once you've completed one or more qualifying upgrade(s), you may apply for a rebate(s). If you plan to complete multiple upgrades, you can wait to apply for rebates all at once. However, please note that rebate applications must be received within 6 months of the installation date of the upgrade (except for applications for the $750 bonus and the draftproofing rebate).

Please carefully read through the terms and conditions [PDF, 161 KB] to confirm your eligibility and understand the rebate requirements. You need to have all supporting documents required for your application.

Supporting documents

If you're ready to apply for your rebate(s), you will need to include copies of any required supporting documents with your application, which include:

Invoices must meet these requirements:

  • All service invoices/receipts must indicate details and the address of the work performed.
  • Include the contractor's company name, contact (phone and/or email) and address must be on the invoices.
  • All product purchase invoices/receipts must have the product's brand, model number, and purchase date.
  • Gas installation requires a natural gas permit number and BCSA gas contractor license number.
  • All copies must be clear and legible.

A supplementary form required only when the electric or gas utility account isn't in the name of the property owner. The utility account holder must fill out the Utility Account Holder Consent form [PDF, 664 KB] and send the completed form to homerebates@bchydro.com*. To speed up the application process, the account holder can provide the application reference number in the email.  

*This may be applicable to a rental property.

This is a supplementary form required for the draftproofing rebate, Energy Coach Home Evaluation rebate and the $750 bonus offer. The Energy Advisor Supported Upgrades form is completed and submitted by the program qualified energy advisor after completing your post-upgrade EnerGuide home evaluation. You must still complete and submit your Home Renovation Rebate application to receive all eligible rebates.

In-home site visit

Some rebate applications are randomly selected for a site visit before a rebate payment is issued. The purpose of the site visit is to verify eligibility and the upgrades detailed in your rebate application. The entire visit will take approximately 60 to 90 minutes.

If your application is selected for a site visit, our contractor, It's On Electric, will contact you with further instructions. Please make your best effort to schedule the visit, as your application including rebate eligibility and amounts may be adjusted, based on the site visit acceptance and result.
