News & Energy Savings Tips from BC Hydro

November 2020

Ever had a chat with our crews in your neighbourhood? They're now working in small groups, or 'pods', during the COVID-19 pandemic, and they'll be taking care to keep their distance as they occasionally ask for help in finding that fallen tree that caused an outage. Do your part by being prepared for outages, and get set for what promises to be a colder and wetter La Niña winter with our best home heating and comfort tips. Also this month, we gear up for fun outside with our annual holiday gift guide, and a reminder that our Smart Ideas contest isn't over: enter by November 8 for a chance to win an Instant Pot and another shot at the grand prize.
