BC Energy Step Code Rebates up to $15,000

The CleanBC Better Homes New Construction Program provides rebates up to $15,000 for the construction of new, high-performance, electric homes. Through the CleanBC plan, the Province is supporting the adoption of the BC Energy Step Code and making energy efficient, climate-friendly homes more affordable and accessible for British Columbians.
Home builders can apply for rebates to lower the cost of meeting the new BC Energy Step Code.
All Season Inspection energy advisors specialize in BC Energy Step Code compliance reports required by BC municipalities and help builders optimize Step Code.

BC municipalities may require up to three Step Code reports:

  • Pre-construction compliance report
  • Mid-construction blower door airtightness test report
  • As-built compliance report
