FortisBC and BC Hydro Power Smart offer two joint programs to help low-income households in British Columbia to reduce their energy costs.
These programs are dedicated to helping those who need it most. Eligibility is based on account verification and income qualifications.
The Energy Conservation and Assistance Program (ECAP) offers free energy assessments and energy saving products to customers on low-incomes. ECAP utilizes qualified contractors to help install upgrades ranging from $300 to $5,000 depending on the needs of the home. The Energy Saving Kit Program consists of a free kit which provides customers on low incomes with a number of simple, easy-to-install, energy-saving products.
“We’re dedicated to helping all of our customers reduce their energy consumption,” said Tom Loski, vice-president, Customer Service, FortisBC. Complete program details, product requirements, eligibility, terms and conditions, and application forms can be found at fortisbc.com/homerebates.
