PORT HARDY and PORT MCNEILL – BC Hydro is partnering with three Port Hardy and Port McNeill retailers to offer incentives for the purchase of energy-efficient products during October, Power Smart Month.

The participating businesses are Dunlop’s Home Hardware and Overwaitea in Port Hardy and Shoprite/Rona in Port McNeill.

Power Smart discounts are available to customers for in-store purchases of energy-efficient lighting, televisions and appliances.

Every year during October, Power Smart Month, BC Hydro shows British Columbians how easy it is to make smart energy use choices and save money on monthly electricity bills. BC Hydro provides increased rebates and incentives to help encourage energy conservation throughout the year.

Customers can save up to $6 on select Energy Star compact fluorescent light bulbs and up to $8 on Energy Star LED bulbs.

Some retailers are also offering additional savings on Energy Star fixtures like ceiling fans, and other energy-saving devices like motion sensors for lighting and power bars.

Some retailers are also offering a 12 per cent discount on select energy-efficient Energy Star rated televisions and major appliances, as well as double the mail-in rebates on select Energy Star clothes washers, dishwashers, refrigerators and freezers.
