Energy Saving Kit (FortisBC)

Energy Saving Kit

BC Hydro and FortisBC are working together to provide free Energy Saving Kits for income-qualified households. Our free kit contains energy-saving products that may help you use less heat and electricity. Use all the items in the kit and you could save about $80* a year!

*Based on average savings for ESK participants in a two bathroom home with gas heated space and water using all the items in the kit. Savings is based on FortisBC Lower Mainland August 2015 residential rate of $8.86 GJ.
