This program is one of the measures being taken to achieve the goals of the Low Carbon Path to 2040 plan the city recently adopted. Through the EcoSave Program homeowners can access reduced cost home energy assessments, rebates for energy efficiency improvements to their home and may qualify for a Nelson Hydro on-bill financing program.
Mayor John Dooley states “The Nelson Hydro EcoSave Energy Retrofit Program is another way we can help our citizens to reduce our energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions, we will continue to seek out new and innovative ways to meet our commitment to a healthy environment in Nelson”
Councillor Donna Macdonald further stated “Nelson is a leader in fighting climate change, and the EcoSave Program will help us reduce emissions and energy. It's an exciting, innovative program, and communities across the country are watching its development."
The public rollout of the program is beginning immediately.
