We want to help you make the switch from fossil fuels to clean hydroelectricity to heat your home or business and run your vehicle. To do this, we’re offering you rebates and incentives to help you make the switch, while still encouraging you to be efficient about how you’re using energy with our tips for single-family homes, condo/ apartments, rentals and businesses. Because no matter the type of energy you use, using less helps keep your costs down and minimizes the environmental impact.
Switch and save with rebates
To help you make the switch to clean power, we offer and/or administer rebates for fuel switching to electricity.

What does it mean to be powered by water?
We have the cleanest electricity generation in western North America with 98% of the electricity we generate coming from clean, renewable resources. This includes 91% being generated from falling water at our hydroelectric facilities. However, clean electricity represents less than 20% of B.C.’s total energy demand, while nearly 70% of the B.C. economy is powered by fossil fuels and the remaining demand is supplied by biofuels.
BC Hydro’s Electrification Plan supports the Government of B.C.’s objectives to achieve an economy-wide shift in how life in B.C. is fueled. And the choices you make in your own home can help us get there.
