The Regional District of Okanagan-Similkameen (RDOS) has partnered with Properate.io to help homeowners learn about their home’s energy efficiency and how to improve it.

Enter to win a Free EnerGuide home energy evaluation!

How to enter the raffle?

Homeowners in the Regional District who use the rdos.properate.io online tool between now and October 3, 2022 will be entered into a raffle to win a free in-home EnerGuide energy assessment (valued at up to $1,000). Everyone who uses the rdos.properate.io online tool will receive a free online energy report and have an opportunity to join group purchasing incentives and top-up rebate programs.

It is that simple! Good luck!

The RDOS, Properate and FortisBC are providing an opportunity for RDOS homeowners to have an Energy Advisor create a detailed energy report of their home for free!

Energy Advisors are qualified to provide an evaluation of homes and recommend energy upgrades, under the NRCAN EnerGuide program. By having an EnerGuide evaluation for your home, you will also gain access to up to $5,600 of federal government grants, as well as, up to $40,000 of interest-free loans for home energy upgrades.

This initiative will connect more homeowners to home energy upgrade resources. It amplifies the government efforts for programs such as FortisBC's Deep Energy Retrofit pilot & improves the financial viability of energy upgrades.

To enter the raffle, visit rdos.properate.io and answer a few questions about your home. The contest closes October 3, 2022 at 11:59 pm and winners will be informed by October 10, 2022. Please see applicable terms and conditions.

Whether you’re interested in reducing your home’s greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions or lowering your energy bill, Properate.io is a tool that can help you make a start to your project while providing online expert advice in under 5 minutes.


RDOS has been offering the Properate.io online Energy Efficiency pilot program since June 2022.

This pilot is currently only available for single-family homes in the Region. This pilot is unable to accommodate apartments, strata or mobile homes. If you would like to see the pilot extended, please say so in the forums below.

These forums are for you if you are:

  • Interested in sharing an experience about an efficient home upgrade done or that you are planning to complete
  • upgrading to more efficient energy-consuming equipment or are looking to do so
  • experiencing failures or successes with accessing rebates
  • Learning more about Deep Energy Retrofits
  • Have concerns about high utility bills
  • Have questions on what to do next with upgrades to your home
  • Maybe you have questions, confusion or complaints about upgrades.


The Senior Energy Specialist and Properate.io team will handle your queries. Please make sure you post only in the forum for your municipality or electoral area!


Neighbourhood Efficiency and The Map

The Properate.io website has a map showing the efficiency bands of homes in the region. The aim is to provide visibility on home efficiency as a neighbourhood. Once you see how you compare to other neighbourhoods, you may wish to have conversations with neighbours about the energy upgrade opportunities you could pursue together. Often, homes in a sub-division face similar energy upgrade opportunities at around the same time. There will be more potential savings if you can work together. The RDOS is here to support your joined efforts as part of this pilot. If three or more neighbours are interested in a joint project, please contact Jeremy Dresner, Senior Energy Specialist, jdresner@rdos.bc.ca to discuss a neighbourhood plan.
