Submitted by Jacque Morin-Reducing your carbon footprint and saving money on energy bills just became easier and more cost effective. City Green Solutions, a non-profit organization that provides energy efficiency services and programs welcomes the introduction of the LiveSmart BC efficiency incentive program. “This new provincial incentive program complements the federal eco-energy retrofit homes initiative in a fantastic way – there has never been more money available to homeowners to improve the energy efficiency, comfort and value of their homes while also reducing greenhouse gas emissions with the local smart home energy loan from the credit union,” explains Peter Sundberg, executive director of City Green Solutions. “The most common recommendations include upgrades to insulation, windows and heating systems,” said local City Green energy advisor Jacques Morin. “Also exciting is that these grant programs reward solar hot water heating, water conservation and net metered renewable energy power generation measures.” City Green Solutions is the only non-profit organization in BC to provide home energy efficiency assessments, customized retrofit plans for residential and commercial buildings and access to federal and provincial energy efficiency grants for homeowners.
