Previous Climate Action Programs
The BOMA BC Building Tune-Up Program was an recommissioning (RCx) program to identify low-cost energy and emissions savings through adjustments or minor upgrades to BOMA members’ building automation systems (BAS). Targeting largely B & C class buildings, the program provided 100% of the cost to conduct a detailed assessment of operational energy conservation measures (ECMs), a further fixed value amount to implement the identified measures, along with the full cost to verify the measures after implementation. Building owners and/or managers applied directly to BOMA BC to be a candidate for this service.
(Previous) Program Phases:
- Investigation - BOMA's RCx provider conducted a thorough investigation of a building's BAS and HVAC systems to identify opportunities for tune-up and re-sequencing and to assess low-cost energy conservation measures. A report was provided outlining the findings, including the cost, estimated savings and payback for implementing the identified opportunities.
- Implementation - A report review led to the implementation of the recommend tune-ups and the BAS re-sequencing. The implementation was conducted by a client's existing BAS service contractor or a contractor of their choice.
- Verification & Hand-off - BOMA's RCx provider conducted a follow-up review, collected the verification data to ensure the measures were functioning as intended and updated the estimate of energy, emissions and cost savings realized. The investigation report was updated and provided to the building operator as a record of the project. Lastly, the RCx provider conducted a training session with the building operations team to review the changes and help ensure the new operating strategies persisted.
BOMA BC, in partnership with the Province, successfully delivered an incentive program that saw the purchase and installation of 128 Level 2 (240V) electric vehicle charging stations (EVCS) in 60 buildings, in 13 cities across BC. The Clean Connect Program offered a substantial incentive amount up to $4,500 per station installed. The program ended on March 31st, 2014.

Through the BOMA Energy Management Program (EMP), partially funded by BC Hydro, BOMA provided direct assistance to members with strategic energy management planning. BOMA BC provided members access to a qualified energy management professional who will work one-on-one with your organization to develop a strategic energy management plan.
