Upcoming energy efficiency workshops for industrial customers

The first step to saving money on energy efficiency is often... figuring out what the first step is.

That's where BC Hydro's workshops can make a difference, by delivering information about best practices and incentives in an efficient, focused session.

"Our workshops are geared to anyone whose responsibilities include energy, production, or cost management," says Alex Adams, Power Smart program manager for Transmission (large industrial) customers. "We make workshops as practical as possible – participants get ideas they can use at their companies, and the latest information about funding and resources that are available so they don't have to do that research themselves.

"People who come also value the chance to network with their peers at other companies and learn what's happening elsewhere. It's a pretty effective use of time."

Check out our upcoming workshops, and fast track your efficiency efforts.
