Fort St. John Residents sign up to reduce power


Close to 1,000 Fort St. John residents have committed to reduce their electricity consumption by 10 per cent.

That brings the total members in Team Power Smart to more than 175,000 throughout British Columbia. In a statement released earlier this week by Team Power Smart, BC Hydro says it’s making it even more fun to participate in the challenge.

When participants join, they receive exclusive member benefits and rewards, including rebates on energy efficient products and special contests. Account holders who reduce their consumption by 10 per cent over a year also receive a $75 reward.

In addition, all team members are entered into a draw to win tickets to the men’s Olympic gold medal ice hockey competition in 2010.

Participants can develop a conservation game plan online, track their progress towards their goal and compare how they are doing with similar households.
