You think it’s the right thing to do, but it might be intimidating to retrofit or upgrade your commercial, residential or industrial building to be more energy efficient. Energy efficiency upgrade rebates exist to make those changes less daunting and more accessible to owners like you.

What Is An Energy Efficiency Rebate?

Kimco works with the FortisBC rebates program to help eligible FortisBC customers make changes like upgrades to HVAC systems, install EV charging stations, or other green solutions that may seem out of reach.

The rebates program helps provide funding in three ways that cut costs to business owners that want to lower their environmental impact while saving money. Owners stand to save thousands on upgrade costs upfront, never mind the potential savings down the line that comes from having implemented energy-efficient systems.

Equipping your property with an EV charging station has never been easier thanks to rebate programs with Kimco and FortisBC.

What Can Be Upgraded With A Rebate?

There are so many different ways that your building can benefit from an energy-efficient upgrade with Kimco and FortisBC including:

  • Electric vehicle charging solutions for residential and commercial buildings
