Heat Pump Rebates
CleanBC, BC Hydro & Greener Homes Grants up to $11,000 on heat pumps.

Lesser rebates are available on other heat pumps, such as 2-head ductless split systems.
The CleanBC rebate of up to $3000 is only for homes without a heat pump, not for homes replacing an existing heat pump. BC Hydro is now matching CleanBC heat pump rebates. The $5000 Greener homes grant is available even if you currently have a heat pump.
