The City of New Westminster is now offering a $350 top-up incentive for local residents upgrading to an electric air-source heat-pump (central or mini-split).

This new municipal rebate is in addition to the existing CleanBC air source heat pump rebate:

  • Heat Pump Rebate – $3,000 if you convert a fossil fuel heating system (oil, propane, or natural gas) to a Tier 2 central or mini-split heat pump.

This new incentive is available for heat pump upgrades completed on or after April 1st.  A full summary of eligibility requirements can be found on CleanBC’s website here.

For homeowners looking to upgrade to an air source heat pump, please be sure to review the Heat Pump Best Practices Installation Guide for Existing Homes to learn more about what to look for in a quality installation.
