Delta to Participate in the FortisBC Energy Savings Outreach Program

Sep 30, 2016

Through mid-October 2016, FortisBC is launching a residential energy savings program in Delta to raise awareness for energy conservation and efficiency. 

As part of the program, The Corporation of Delta will provide space at the Municipal Hall for a display and invites Mayor Lois E. Jackson, Delta Councillors, and Delta staff to visit the display and make an energy pledge. A similar display will be set up at other locations in the community, with Delta promoting the campaign through its social media channels. 

The program is intended provide information and encourage Delta residents to reduce energy consumption in their home by making small behaviour changes. Once residents make the pledge on behaviour changes, FortisBC will provide a reward:

Behaviour Change Pledge  FortisBC Incentive 
Shorten shower time by 1 - 3 minutes Efficient showerhead 
Lower thermostat by 1 - 3 degrees $25 furnace filter coupon to Home Hardware 
Decrease household drafts  Draft proofing kit (caulking, plug insulators, weather stripping) 

 

FortisBC has focused on space and water heating as this is where 60% if our home's energy is used.

Mayor Jackson and Delta Council invite the public to come view the displays on October 3 and 5th and sign the energy pledge.
