News & Energy Savings Tips from BC Hydro

February 2017

Did the recent winter chill lead to a higher than expected BC Hydro bill? We're offering you help through our special Winter Payment Plan. Also this month, we do a deep dive into using data to help us with our electricity use, electric cars and personal health. We also check in on the guy who switched his whole house to LEDs five years ago, follow a BMW electric car to Revelstoke, invite you to enter our Bundle Up B.C. photo contest, and offer a winter travel checklist for your home.
