Power Smart Month preview: Big savings, prizes & more

Posted by Rob Klovance

As a BC Hydro customer, you're probably well aware that October is the time to save a bunch on energy-efficient products, which will in turn save you a bunch on your BC Hydro bills.

Last year it was LED lighting that stole the show, and one guy was so impressed that he swapped out every light in his house to the long-lasting, energy-efficient lamps.

But we'd like to think that Power Smart Month 2012 is going to be even better. Yes, we'll still have deals on ENERGY STARĀ® lighting, appliances and electronics. But we'll also have a fun, new interactive feature.

There will be big winners in our online game, and no losers. You'll either win a prize, or you'll learn about a great Power Smart Month special. And if you want to chase those prizes again, there will be a way for you to play again. And again.

You're also going to discover some fun, informative animated characters on powersmart.ca, with names like Morton and Asha. They may make you laugh a little, but ultimately they'll be your guides to Power Smart tips and success stories, and there will be great info for residential, commercial and industrial customers.

Want to get the most out of Power Smart Month? Join Team Power Smart and you'll get even more chances to playthe onlne game, and some exclusive offers not available to the general public. It's free to join, so if you're not already a member, join now.

So when October 1st rolls around, remember to visit powersmart.ca.
