News & Energy Savings Tips from BC Hydro

July 2018

It's time to swap B.C. travel memories. This month we follow Dave on a journey of discovery to several towns in B.C., and in return, we're asking you to share a great B.C. photo for a chance to win prizes including a $500 MEC gift card. Also this month, we jump into the deep end with 9 ways to conserve water (and save some money), we bust myths around swimming and water safety, and we have news on the number of electric vehicle fast chargers in B.C. We're also on the hunt for B.C. households who want to hang out with Dave while getting some free energy efficiency upgrades to their home.
