Pre-registration forms submitted on or before this date will be processed in the order in which they were received, subject to funding availability.

If your project has been pre-approved, complete your project within 12 months of the date of your pre-approval confirmation email. If construction is complete, and you have your supporting documents ready, apply for rebates. You have 6 months from the date of your heat pump installation invoice or As-Built B.C.Energy Compliance Report, as applicable for your project, to submit your post-construction application.

Options to extend funding for the program are actively being considered. We will be able to share an update on the program’s status following the release of the Province of British Columbia’s Budget 2022. Please check betterhomesbc.ca/cleanbc-new-construction for updates on the status of the program.
