Bethel Assembly

Bethel Assembly Church, Woodstock, NB
Upgrades: 3 Mini-Split Ductless Heat Pumps to replace baseboard electric heaters
Cost: $11,825
Rebate: $2,956

Reverend Ron Ecker was searching for a way to make the Bethel Assembly Church more energy efficient when NB Power staff pointed him to the Business Rebate Program.

“We weren’t eligible for the residential program, and too small to go through the commercial program, so we reached out and found out about the Business Rebate Program,” says Pastor Ecker.

Through the Business Rebate Program, the Church was able to install three mini-split ductless heat pumps to replace baseboard electric heaters. “It was quite easy to go through the Program and find answers when we had questions. We want to be a help and reduce our energy consumption in the province, and we knew we could find cost-savings through the mini-splits. And on top of the cost savings, members of our congregation are much more comfortable now.”

Commercial program lead Shawn Chisholm says the Business Rebate Program makes it easy for New Brunswick businesses to reduce energy costs and shrink green house gas emissions by making energy upgrades. “If you have an upgrade in mind, let us know and we can help determine if you’re eligible for 25% back on equipment and installation costs,” Chisholm says.
