Want to save money on your electricity bills, but not sure what home retrofit projects will help? Want an affordable financing option to do the renovations?
HELP is here, the City of Penticton is proud to offer residents its Home Energy Loan Program (HELP), which can work in conjunction with Fortis BC's HERO Program offering rebates for insulation, air sealing and more.
About the HELP Program
HELP is a loan service available to residents through the City of Penticton for eligible energy-efficiency upgrades. To qualify, you must be a Penticton Electric Utility customer, meet City of Penticton credit approval and currently reside in the home being upgraded. The maximum loan amount is $10,000, to be repaid over 10 years on your Monthly Electric Utility bill. The City of Penticton HELP program will run until Dec. 31, 2022.
HELP can be used for the same energy efficiency retrofits that are eligible for rebates through the Fortis BC's HERO Program and improvements recommended in the Home Energy Assessment done on your home. Examples of improvements include air sealing, exterior wall insulation, basement insulation, doors and windows.
