The City of Vancouver launched our Home Energy Loan Program that offers financing to Vancouver homeowners to cover the cost of their energy efficiency upgrades, including furnaces, heat pumps, boilers, hot water tanks, insulation and weatherization. The loans are from $4,000 - $16,000 offered by Vancity at a fixed 4.5% interest rate over ten years. In addition, we are also promoting the federal ecoENERGY and provincial LiveSmart grant programs to offset the cost of energy upgrades. We'd like to reach out to your networks and employees who are homeowners of single-family or duplex houses in Vancouver. We want to let them know about the program so they can access this financing tool if they find the cost of making their houses more comfortable and efficient to be a barrier.
