News & Energy Savings Tips from BC Hydro

May 2017

How do you decorate or camouflage a BC Hydro electrical box? In Chilliwack and Steveston, wrap them in art that has a strong link to local history or the natural environment. Also this month, we travel to southeast B.C. to see how a new project is rolling out 50-plus new electric vehicle charging stations across the region, we go north to towns like Buick as we spread the word about electrical safety, we look at the dangers balloons and kites pose to power lines, and we explore 10 ways you can tweak your laundry to save energy, money, and perhaps your favourite tee shirt. Oh, and appliance rebates are back.
