BC Hydro helps customers save energy and money this winter with free energy saving kits

VANCOUVER – BC Hydro representatives will be distributing free energy saving kits at food banks and Christmas bureaus to help British Columbians save energy and money this winter.

Energy saving kits, offered in partnership with FortisBC, will provide income-qualified customers with easy-to-install, energy saving items such as LED lightbulbs, weather stripping products, high performance showerheads and water-saving aerators. These products can help customers save up to $80 in electricity costs each year.
