About the program
Whether building or renovating, you’ll need the services of a contractor* that hires professionally trained workers and certified electricians to install your equipment.
We developed the FortisBC Electrical Contractor Program to help you find contractors for the products and services you need. Contractors listed in our directory:
- possess a minimum of $2 million liability and third-party insurance
- have a business licence for each community they operate in
- have been in business for a minimum of one year
- are informed about energy-efficiency rebates
Deciding who should install your equipment
A good contractor will provide you with a written quote that includes a clear outline of the costs and work involved. We recommend you get a minimum of three quotes before deciding on which contractor to use. And remember, the contractor offering the lowest price may not necessarily be the best.
Selecting the right equipment for your home or business
Before making your final decision about what products and services you require, contact a FortisBC Electrical Contractor Program member. Talking about your lifestyle and/or daily routines will help your contractor recommend what’s right for your home and family, or business. Making the right decision now could help you save money and time in the future.
*By using this directory, you acknowledge and agree that the retention of a contractor and any decisions related to the services performed or products provided by the contractor are within your sole discretion. FortisBC assumes no liability or responsibility with respect to the contractor, the suitability or operation of installations performed by the contractor or products provided by the contractor. You are responsible for ensuring installations meet your requirements, manufacturer’s instructions and all applicable codes, standards and regulations, including any electrical permits.
