How To Save with a Home Energy Evaluation

Posted on Posted in Home Energy

For a limited time, the Resort Municipality of Whistler (RMOW) is making it easier for builders to help homeowners to reduce monthly utility costs and improve building performance with a new Residential Energy Assessment Rebate Program.

The rebate program offers Whistler homeowners $250 towards an Energuide for Homes home energy evaluation, helping homeowners potentially access hundreds, even thousands of dollars in utility program rebates as well as ongoing reductions in monthly bills. As part of the new program, applicants will also have access to a free professional energy coach to help homeowners interpret the results of their evaluation, select the best upgrade options for their unique home, and potentially access recently announced Home Energy Rebate Offer (HERO) grants from BC Hydro and FortisBC.

The utility-led HERO rebate program expires March 2015 so now is a great time to get started with a discounted energy evaluation of your home.

Booking a home energy evaluation is the best way to get started on the path to monthly energy cost savings.
