For business customers

If you own a small business or commercial building (including band-owned community buildings) located in a remote community, we can help you cut your energy use and strengthen your bottom line by offering you enhanced incentives on select energy-efficient upgrades.
 

Not only do these incentives shorten the payback period of your upfront investment, they make the decision to upgrade easy – helping you to reduce consumption and save on energy costs long term. When you (or your contractor) enter your BC Hydro account number in the online Business energy-saving incentives application, enhanced incentives will automatically be applied on eligible energy-efficient upgrades.
