RDOS homeowners can enter for free energy efficiency evaluation

Enter for energy assessment

Want a free, professional energy report on your home? Regional District of Okanagan Similkameen homeowners can now enter to win one.

In partnership with Properate.io and FortisBC, the RDOS is running a raffle for an in-home EnerGuide energy assessment, valued at up to $1,000.

“A professional, accredited home energy assessment can help ensure you are planning the right project and getting the best funding to make a real change to your home’s carbon emissions and bottom line,” says Jeremy Dresner, RDOS senior energy specialist.

“People who want to save energy and cut costs may not know how to get the best results for their investment."

The EnerGuide program is aimed at giving more homeowners access to home energy upgrade resources such as $5,600 of federal government grants, as well as up to $40,000 of interest-free loans for home energy upgrades.

Homeowners can also use Properate.io, a tool that matches available energy upgrade incentives, to projects. The RDOS is inviting participants from across the region to receive a free assessment in return for sharing their results.

"The RDOS continues to bring innovative tools to help residents with their home energy projects,” says RDOS board chair Mark Pendergraft.

“The NRCAN EnerGuide program brings a certified energy assessor into the home to create a report that unlocks grants to spend on energy upgrades. The chance to get this service for free is a unique opportunity and I encourage residents to apply.”

To enter the raffle, visit rdos.properate.io and answer a few questions about your home. The contest closes Monday, October 3, 2022, at 11:59 p.m. Raffle winners will be informed by Monday, October 10, 2022. Everyone who uses the rdos.properate.io online tool will receive a free online energy report and have an opportunity to join group purchasing incentives and top-up rebate programs.

Municipal and rural district residents are all invited to apply.
