Rink de-aerator rebate

Adding a mechanical rink de-aerator to a hot water system used for indoor ice rink resurfacing helps remove micro air bubbles and increase heat transfer. This allows for lower water temperatures, which saves energy and creates a harder, smoother ice surface requiring less maintenance. Now, for a limited time, until December 31, 2021, you can qualify for an even bigger rebate of $27,000 on an eligible rink de-aerator.


  1. FortisBC natural gas customer under any rate class except Rate 1 and/or a FortisBC electricity customer or municipal electricity customer of Grand Forks, Penticton, Summerland and Nelson Hydro on a commercial rate. 
  2. Purchase date of products (as shown on the paid invoice) must be after May 1, 2019.
  3. You must submit an application and supporting documentation no later than 365 days after the purchase date of the product(s) (as shown on the paid invoice).

Review all the terms and conditions.
