News & Energy Savings Tips from BC Hydro

September 2021

With fall around the corner, we look to our future, see what we can do to take our foot off the gas en route, and look back at some overlooked B.C. history. Dave introduces us to his new co-spokesperson, and learn what murals on a BC Hydro substation tell us about a lost Vancouver community. See how you can join a free smart home trial, and ahead of National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, hear from the daughter of a residential school survivor about what Orange Shirt Day means to her. We're encouraging youth to deliver 10,000 #ActsofClean for a chance to win, and learn about the quiet and clean of electric mowers, blowers, and power tools.
