Vancouver Energy Advisors

Our team of energy advisors specializes in helping homeowners qualify for grants and rebates, both federal and provincial.

Before you can apply for federal rebates, you'll need an EnerGuide evaluation (AKA an energy audit) delivered by an energy advisor who is registered with Natural Resources Canada.


You must book your evaluation before work begins to be eligible.

Renovations over $20,000
Renovation REUP

Renovation Energy Upgrade Proposal Checklist

City of Vancouver's Building Bylaw requires anyone completing renovations over $20,000 to get an EnerGuide home evaluation from a Certified Energy Advisor (CEA) as part of the REUP program.

If you need an EnerGuide home evaluation to secure your City of Vancouver renovation permit, contact us for a quote.

Call 604-629-8300 or use our webform to book your evaluation with a certified energy advisor.


Heat Pump Rebate
Municipal Top-Up

Greener Homes Grant

The Canada Greener Homes Grant is providing up to 700,000 grants of up to $5,000 to homeowners making energy efficient retrofits to their homes.

Not all renovations are covered under this program, ensure that your renovation plans are covered in their list of eligible retrofits.

Successfully completing at least one eligible grant in the Federal program as well as a pre and post energy evaluation will qualify you for up to $600 from the federal government to pay for your energy evaluation services. 

In BC the existing CleanBC Better Homes BC program offers additional opportunities for homeowners. Homeowners completing both a pre and post EnerGuide will be able to claim an additional $300 for their energy evaluation ($200 for pre and $100 for post.) At this point in time all provincial rebates must be claimed independently through CleanBC.


In summary, there are up to $900 in rebates to pay for energy evaluations of qualifying homeowners in BC who follow through the federal grant and provincial rebate programs.

To qualify you must receive a pre and post energy evaluation as well as complete a minimum of one eligible grant in the Federal Program. The home must also be your primary residence and eligible for an evaluation.

What does this mean for your renovation? More resources from the federal government to pay for high efficiency retrofits. The grant value of each upgrade is in addition to CleanBC's existing rebate program but the conditions and applications must be met independently. Read more about CleanBC rebates below.

Don't miss out on thousands in rebates, get your EnerGuide evaluation before starting your renovation.

The Home Energy Improvement Bonus is a rebate of $750 to $2000 for installing three or more eligible energy upgrades. To qualify for this bonus rebate, homeowners must get pre- and post-upgrade EnerGuide home energy evaluations from a certified energy advisor. Click here for details.​
