Energy Efficiency

Non-profit housing operators can sometimes take advantage of energy efficiency incentives offered by utilities like BC Hydro and Fortis BC. CHF BC and BC Non-Profit Housing Association, which shares offices with the federation, can help connect co-ops to those programs.

The Energy Conservation Assistance Program (ECAP) is now fully open to non-profit housing co-ops, and does not require income-testing for each household. This is a free program and all members are urged to learn more about it.
