Business Energy Advisor Service

Business Energy Advisor Service

Are you eligible?

If you are a BC business and spend less than $50,000 on electricity per year then you may be eligible for the LiveSmart BC: Small Business Program*.

What do you get?  A Business Energy Advisor will visit your business and work directly with you to identify potential energy and money saving opportunities, including lighting, hot water, heating and ventilation.

How this works?  The Business Energy Advisor will perform a FREE walk-through energy assessment of your office or building. Then, they will connect you to energy saving incentive programs, contractors and technology providers to help you make these improvements a reality (see example).

How do you register for the program? There are only 20 assessments scheduled for your area this year. You can register through the Prince George Chamber of Commerce or directly by emailing sorin@pgchamber.bc.ca.

What else is offered?

The LiveSmart BC: Small Business Champion Program is currently accepting applications from small businesses, for innovative, energy saving projects. The program will award up to $25,000 or 75% of the project cost for winning proposals. Please call Sorin Pasca at 1-250-562-2454 for more info.
