Colwood residents have now taken advantage of all 120 Solar Colwood grants that were available for ductless air source heat pumps, a total incentive worth approximately $90,000.
The grants were made possible by the Government of Canada’s Clean Energy Fund and B.C. Hydro. Additional incentives for the heat pumps are still available through the Home Energy Rebate Offer (HERO) Program from B.C. Hydro and FortisBC.
Solar Colwood continues to offer financial incentives for home energy assessments and the installation of solar hot water systems, electric vehicle charging stations and solar photovoltaic systems.
Free energy and water saving kits are available at city hall, 3300 Wishart Rd., for Colwood homeowners and renters.
