Home Energy Loan Program (HELP)

Did you know you can reduce your utility bills by as much as 40% by making your home more energy efficient?

To help you upgrade your home easily and affordably, city staff – working with Vancouver City Savings Credit Union (Vancity) – created a Home Energy Loan Program that offers advice, access to experts, and low-cost loans.

As part of this program, you can qualify for up to $7,000 in government rebates, and borrow up to $16,000 through Vancity at a 4.5% fixed interest over ten years to complete select home energy upgrades.
