Capital Region Homeowners Can Access Energy Retrofit Support Through New Climate Program

Capital Regional District
VICTORIA – Homeowners in the capital region have a new opportunity to take action and make their homes more climate friendly through the new Bring It Home 4 The Climate program.

Led by City Green Solutions, the program will engage and support homeowners who are interested in improving the energy efficiency and reducing the carbon footprint of their homes as well as motivate other homeowners to do the same.

“Residential buildings are a large source of greenhouse gas emissions in the capital region, second only to on-road transportation,” said Larisa Hutcheson, General Manager, Parks and Environmental Services at the Capital Regional District (CRD). “Homeowners who are interested in reducing energy consumption will benefit from participating in this program and can also make a difference when it comes to reducing our region’s carbon footprint.”

Through the program, homeowners will have access to free virtual home energy check-ups with a Bring It Home Energy Expert, up to a $250 subsidy for COVID-safe EnerGuide Home Energy Evaluation, supplies to reduce the air leakage in their homes, learning opportunities to increase home energy literacy and support do-it-yourself projects. They will also have access to existing provincial and municipal retrofit incentives offered through the Better Homes BC program, making retrofits more affordable.

Participants can take advantage of what Bring It Home has to offer and join a community of people taking climate action.

Bring It Home is supported by the Federation of Canadian Municipalities Transition 2050 project, the CRD, the District of Central Saanich, the District of Saanich, the Township of Esquimalt and the City of Victoria. The program will run until December 31 2020.
