Who is eligible for ECAP?
All residents, in all housing types (rental homes and basements suites included) who have a FortisBC electric or gas account can apply at our Open House, through a simple “made for Greenwood” process. The ECAP program typically asks for income verification, however, Avalon Alliance has negotiated with FortisBC that this process be waived for residents of Greenwood.
As ECAP is designed for income-qualified households, you will be asked to self-declare a range of income for your household. However, no further documentation will be requested and if you do find that your household income is above these thresholds, please talk to us, we can still help you to navigate or access additional offers and incentives.

A BIG THANK YOU to the many Greenwood Community Stakeholders who are helping promote this Initiative, including the Greenwood Board of Trade, the Ledge Paper and the Seniors Drop-Centre. We also appreciate the post-event assistance of the Greenwood Community Hall and Greenwood Credit Union in providing the customized ECAP application envelopes to local residents. Much gratitude also to the Mama’s Pacific Grill for their food catering, as well as the Copper Eagle, Saffron Guild and Deadwood Cafe who provided desserts for the recent Open House event.
Additional residential energy programs may be applied for separately, if desired, through CleanBC and Greener Homes online. Applicants must meet their eligibility requirements.
