Smart energy management for BC industry

April 2017

As of April 1, there's no more tiered pricing for energy and demand charges (and baselines aren't required) for BC Hydro Large and Medium General Service customers. That's because we just received approval for flat rates for businesses. Also this month, UNBC saves $250,000 a year by identifying operational efficiencies at nine existing buildings. And good news for lighting upgrades: we've added 1500-2000W HID categories to our list of incentives.

Baseline rates are out, flat rates are in
