Businesses throughout BC are encouraged to promote energy conservation during 
 
Turn Down The Heat Week
November 4 - 10, 2017
#turndowntheheatweek
 
Turn Down the Heat Week is the Business Improvement Areas of BC annual initiative that brings together business improvement associations across the Province to raise awareness of the environmental and economic benefits of reducing wasteful energy consumption and to help those in need of warm winter clothing.
 
From November 4 - 10 staff at participating businesses don warm sweaters and turn down their thermostat at work, and at home, reaping the financial benefits of reducing energy consumption. The collection of warm clothing at all participating businesses for local charities during this week draws attention to the initiative and helps get the conversation started.
 
This is the fifth year that Business Improvement Associations around BC have come together to make a difference in their communities and promote the important message of energy conservation.
 
FortisBC, the title sponsor of this province-wide initative, offers a range of resources for businesses to help them save energy and cut down on heating and hot water costs. Along with a wide range of energy savings tips, FortisBC also has a robust rebate program for business owners to take advantage of when upgrading their premises, or retrofitting to improve energy efficiciency. Tips and rebates are also available for home owners interested in conserving energy.
 
Thank you to FortisBC for their support and thank you to all for participating!
