The Heat Pump Group Purchase Rebate (GPR) rewards groups of homeowners working together to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by switching from an oil, natural gas, or propane heating system to an air source heat pump. The Group Heat Pump Purchase Rebate is additional to the up to $3,000 available from CleanBC, the Electrical Service Upgrade Rebate, and any local government top-ups that may be available.
The Group Heat Pump Purchase Rebate ranges from $200 per home, for a group of 2 homes, and up to a maximum of $500 for a group of 20 to 30 homes. Participants are encouraged to spread the word about their heat pump purchase group. The larger each group becomes, the larger the rebate.
Contractors can advise their clients to either join an existing group with a Group Purchase Rebate (GPR) code, or start their own group by requesting a new GPR code, by registering at www.betterhomesbc.ca/GPR. The GPR code is valid for 90 days after the code is issued – the code will include an expiry date for ease of understanding. If your code expires before you’re able to submit an application, you can join another group by registering with a different number or starting your own group.
