Green Building Rebate Program

Your home is an appliance.

It's simple. The Township of Langley is making it easier for you to find an energy efficient home. We provide financial incentives to builders and homeowners for energy efficient new residential construction or home renovations that excel under the BC Energy Step Code and the EnerGuide rating system.

What is the Step Code?

The BC Energy Step Code is a new provincial standard that provides an incremental and consistent approach to achieve energy efficient construction. It is a roadmap to achieve Net-Zero Ready new construction in BC through a series of progressive steps. The Township of Langley requires compliance with the Lower Steps for buildings with residential units. Incentives are available during this time of industry transition to offset the costs of working with an Energy Advisor, as well as to provide incentives for buildings built to the Upper Steps of the Step Code. 

Learn more about the Energy Step Code.

What is EnerGuide?

An EnerGuide rating is the Canadian standard for measuring the energy performance of consumer items such as appliances, vehicles, and homes. A home EnerGuide rating provides the information you need about energy performance to help you make informed decisions about building, renovating, or purchasing your home.
