Thank you for a great campaign in 2016. We look forward to your participation in 2017.

 Businesses throughout BC are encouraged to promote energy conservation during 
Turn Down The Heat Week
November 4 - 10, 2017
Turn Down the Heat Week is a Business Improvement Areas of BC initiative for the purpose of bringing together BIAs in raising awareness for and reducing wasteful energy consumption, as well as being a charitable campaign for the gathering and donation of warm clothing items for those in need. During the event, through the encouragement of participating BIAs and the support of our sponsor FortisBC, participating member businesses turn down their thermostat for one week at home and at work and staff are encouraged to wear a sweater to promote the campaign mission. Businesses also collect sweaters and other warm clothing items to be donated to a charity of their BIAs choosing.
This is the fifth year Business Improvement Associations are encouraged to come together and work collaboratively on a province-wide project at the same time. It is an exciting opportunity to make a difference and promote the important message of energy conservation. Thank you to FortisBC for their support and thank you to all for participating!
FortisBC 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 promises, or retrofitting to improve energy efficiciency. Tips and rebates are also available for home owners interested in conserving energy.
