CRD Launches Home Energy Navigator Program

November 10, 2022

VICTORIA –The Capital Regional District (CRD) has launched the Home Energy Navigator program which is designed to streamline home energy upgrades in the region’s single-family homes.

The Home Energy Navigator Program aims to support residents to undertake low carbon home energy retrofits and take advantage of government and utility incentives. Participants are connected with an Energy Concierge, who is then available throughout a retrofit project to answer questions, provide support, and give local, expert advice and guidance to navigate the complex world of home energy retrofits.

“Whether you need help identifying energy saving opportunities, comparing insulation or heat pump quotes, or applying for rebates and grants, this program is here to help,” said Nikki Elliott, Manager of Climate Action Programs for the CRD. “This program has been designed to give residents the knowledge and confidence to improve the efficiency of their homes.”

The Home Energy Navigator Program in a free program created by the CRD and local government partners in the capital region and informed by industry experts, including numerous local contractors. It is being executed by City Green Solutions, a local non-profit with decades of experience helping homeowners save energy.

Energy used in buildings accounts for about a third of the region’s greenhouse gas emissions. The CRD Board declared a climate emergency on February 13, 2019, including calling for the CRD to take a leadership role in pursuing regional carbon neutrality. The Home Energy Navigator program is a key action in the 2021 CRD Climate Action Strategy.

Residents can participate in the program for free by filling out a registration form at www.homeenergynav.ca or calling 1.866.381.9995.
