BC Energy Step Code

The Township of Langley has adopted the BC Energy Step Code, a provincial standard that provides an incremental and consistent approach to achieving more energy-efficient buildings that go beyond the requirements of the base BC Building Code. Effective January 1, 2019, compliance with the BC Energy Step Code is required for all new building permit applications for residential buildings.

Home Renovation Rebates

BC Hydro, in partnership with Fortis BC, and Clean BC, are offering up to $10,000 in rebates for energy efficient home upgrades. Eligible projects include insulation, water heating, windows, and space heating for your home. Learn more about home renovation rebates.

Appliance Rebate Program

BC Hydro offers rebates on the purchase of select Energy Star washers, dryers and refrigerators during specific campaign months each year. The Township matches these rebates to help residents save up to $200.  

Rebate offers run periodically throughout the year.
