Do you know what BC offers when it comes to solar panel incentives?
British Columbia has a “Net Metering” program through BC Hydro which allows residents to export any excess solar power they generate to the grid. The excess solar electricity that is exported to the grid is deducted from your electricity bill. For example, if you consumed 1,000 kWh and exported 200 kWh in a month you would only be charged for only 800 kWh worth of electricity.

There are currently no direct financial rebates for solar panels in BC.
