KELOWNA, B.C. – August 13, 2013: Building on the success of Rossland and the Kootenays, FortisBC is expanding the popular Energy Diet program to customers in the Okanagan. FortisBC will be hosting "ener-ventions" (information sessions) throughout the region for customers who want to reduce their homes’ energy use and save money on their utility bills.

"One of the best ways for homeowners to save on their energy bills is to make energy efficiency upgrades to their homes," said Tom Loski, vice-president of customer service for FortisBC. "We saw how successful a community approach to energy savings can be with last year’s Rossland Energy Diet. Since then, we’ve expanded the program to the Kootenays, and now the Okanagan, to provide customers with direct support in making home energy upgrades."

Okanagan Energy Diet participants will get a discounted energy assessment, energy saving products installed directly in their home, hands-on help applying for up to $6,000 worth of rebates, and, if eligible, financing options to make energy efficient improvements to their home.

We are also challenging communities across the Okanagan to work together to save energy. That’s why we’ll be giving the community that saves the most energy $5,000 for an energy efficient upgrade to a public facility.

"The Town of Osoyoos is pleased to endorse the Okanagan Energy Diet. Town Council is pleased to support economic savings and energy conservation which in turn reduce our demands on the environment," said Mayor Stu Wells. "We are pleased to see that this program provides an opportunity for Council to promote a ‘shop local’ initiative for products and services."

Quick Facts

  • Participants will receive a home energy assessment and installation of energy efficiency products, such as: outlet insulation, a low flow shower head, and kitchen tap aerators, for $60 - 85 per cent off the regular price of $400. They can also use our energy calculator www.fortisbc.com/energycalculator to compare the costs of different home heating energy sources and individual appliance energy costs. 
  • A local energy coach will help customers through the process and offer energy-saving tips along the way.
  • Participants can access up to $4,000 in rebates from LiveSmart BC and up to $2,000 in rebates from FortisBC.
  • Some participants may qualify for loans for completing their energy upgrades. These will show up on their electricity bills, making re-payment simple.

FortisBC is committed to helping customers conserve energy and get the most out of their energy dollar by providing financial incentives and energy savings tips for natural gas and electricity. Since it was founded in 1989, FortisBC’s PowerSense program has helped Southern Interior electricity customers save more than 445 gigawatt hours. That’s enough electricity to power 35,000 homes every year for twenty four years.
