Northern Rockies Regional Municipality

Business Energy Assessments Free in Northern Rockies

The Northern Rockies Regional Municipality is working with the BC Hydro Power Smart Program to coordinate a visit with a Business Energy Advisor to have them come to Fort Nelson. The program offers free energy assessments to eligible businesses, at no cost to the Municipality. In order to qualify for the service, companies must:

• Have a commercial BC Hydro account that spends approximately less than $200,000 per year on electricity.
• Be interested in making cost effective energy upgrades.
• Note: If a company has multiple commercial accounts, then each account under $200,000 may be eligible. Businesses that have a key account manager are ineligible.

A Business Energy Advisor will conduct a site visit, help local businesses identify saving opportunities and advise on available incentives. They are also able to provide connection with approved contractors and help with the utility incentive process. For example, the current rebates for upgrading incandescent/halogen lights to LED can cover 75% of the cost of the new LED products, which leads to payback periods of 3-4 months (after rebates and savings), and do not require an electrician.

Interested businesses should contact the Sustainability & Solid Waste Coordinator to be put on a Business Energy Advisory list. We are looking at bringing an advisor to Fort Nelson mid-June 2015.
