Share your home energy story

What this is about

We're looking for several B.C. households to be showcased as part of BC Hydro's efforts to help British Columbians find ways to better manage their electricity use and keep their bills low. Through words, images and video we'll be telling the story of the selected households in our online and social media channels and potentially on TV.

Selected households will be aided by an energy coach and some efficiency upgrades as they try to reduce their electricity use. We'll want you to share your candid thoughts with our customers, including your challenges, small victories and best ideas.

Two households will be chosen for a head-to-head energy-saving challenge over a four-week period, and the household that wins the challenge will receive an ENERGY STAR® appliance package.

We need a video & basic information

If you're interested in being selected for this initiative, submit a short selfie-style video – no longer than two minutes in length – and fill out the form below. Please try to include only one person – you or a member of your family – in the  video you will submit either by upload (details below) or by including a link to the video elsewhere. Limiting consent to one person will be easier, as you'll need to allow us to temporarily store the video on a server outside Canada.

Note that registration, including submission of your video, doesn't guarantee you will be chosen to participate.

The selected households will be contacted in early January and will be chosen, in part, on their ability to be available for weekend coaching and filming in January and February, 2018.

The legal stuff

Since we'll be using JotForm and Google Drive to make it easy for you to submit your video, we need your consent that your video submission will be temporarily stored outside of Canada. To make it official, we ask you indicate below that you and the people appearing or mentioned in the video consent to their personal information being temporarily stored outside of Canada during the submission phase, until March 1, 2018.

We'll need to verify this information if your submission is selected to participate. If we can't verify these details, we won't be able to consider your submission. In the event your household is not selected, your video submission will be destroyed.
