The Strathcona Business Improvement Association has teamed up with the Province of B.C.?s LiveSmart BC: Small Business Program to help small and medium sized businesses identify potential energy and money saving opportunities.
The Strathcona BIA is always looking for opportunities to support member businesses in improving their ability to thrive well into the future. Partnering on this offer with the Province of B.C., BC Hydro, FortisBC, and Metro Vancouver to offer a walk-though energy assessment of your business, and to identify areas for savings, makes good sense environmentally and economically.
LiveSmart BC Business Energy Advisors (BEAs) will be in our area between
October 17th and 23rd to conduct free, on-site walk-through energy assessments. An assessment takes approximately one hour. Following the assessment, you will receive a report tailored to your business? needs outlining ways to conserve energy, how to receive rebates and incentives where available, and what bottom line savings can be achieved if recommended changes are made. Opportunities include technology upgrades such as lighting and boilers, as well as low- and no-cost opportunities to save energy, improve the look of your business, and reduce maintenance.
This is a free service with no obligation from your business to implement any recommended energy saving opportunities. Businesses that do wish to proceed with changes will also receive assistance in identifying suitable contractors and applying for utility incentive programs where applicable.
To book an energy assessment, learn more, or confirm eligibility, please contact the Metro Vancouver BEA team at firstname.lastname@example.org or 604.255.5734, and identify that you are a Strathcona business.
