Dave's tips save you money
News & Energy Savings Tips from BC Hydro

March 2018

After a frigid February, we invite you to explore a series of fun tips & videos on that include our energy expert Dave's on-the-spot advice for a B.C. family that really needed his help. Also this month, a look at the new-look BC Hydro bill, a surprisingly long list of items in your home you can recycle as part of spring cleaning, and a story (with video) of a deer rescue from the icy waters of Okanagan Lake. And in case you missed it, the Winter Payment Program is back.
