About the program

The Home Energy Navigator Program in a free program created by local governments in BC to engage and support homeowners throughout their retrofit journey. Participants are connected with an Energy Concierge, who will be available throughout their retrofit project to answer questions, provide support, and give local, expert advice and guidance to navigate the complex world of home energy retrofits.

The programs goal is to reduce carbon pollution from homes and buildings, which make up approximately 40% of the carbon pollution in the capital region of British Columbia and nearly 60% in Vancouver – mostly a result of the use of oil, natural gas and propane for space and water heating and the low level of efficiency of homes in the region. But regardless if you are motivated to decarbonize, increase comfort, reduce noise, reduce utility bill, or just generally make your home better, the Home Energy Navigator program can help with advice and support you need.

Frequently Asked Questions


Canada is among the top 10 global emitters as a country and one of the largest per capita emitters of GHGs. While the energy consumption and greenhouse gases emitted from your home make up a tiny percentage of global greenhouse gas emissions, at a regional level, the collective GHG emissions from homes is significant. More importantly, the amount of GHG emissions you produce in your home is completely within your control to reduce. Individual and collective actions at home are part of the solution.  The Home Energy Navigator Program supports and guides participants on climate-friendly upgrades that, individually and collectively, support global efforts to tackle climate change.


Participants must be owners of a home within the Capital Regional District or the City of Vancouver.

The home being upgraded must be an eligible home type for the CleanBC Better Homes and

  • single family detached; or
  • side-by-side duplex; or
  • side-by-side row home or townhome; or
  • a mobile home on a permanent foundation.
