In light of the current COVID-19 situation, the COEDC is thankful to all the local businesses that are going above and beyond in supporting the community. Thank you GreenStep Solutions for your leadership.
GreenStep Solutions is a Kelowna-based company that regularly works with local businesses to provide energy, water, waste, and carbon assessments and consulting work, but they've modified some of their existing contracts to provide free support during the COVID-19 outbreak.
FortisBC and BC Hydro are currently offering free support from energy advisors who are available to speak via telephone to identify no-cost ways to reduce your business’s energy consumption while you are operating at reduced hours, or even experiencing a temporary closure. Reducing your energy consumption will help you reduce your energy bills, and will also help the utility companies reduce demand during this period when many are experiencing reduced economic activity. Anyone interested in this free support can reach out to the contacts below directly; they will aim to call you within 2 business days:
For businesses within FortisBC electricity and natural gas areas, please reach out to email@example.com
For businesses within the BC Hydro electric area, please reach out to David.Hevey@bchydro.com
