Residential Energy Efficiency Works (REnEW)

REnEW is a training program that was created by FortisBC in co-operation with community groups to help individuals with barriers to employment train for jobs in the growing field of energy-efficiency retrofitting. The hands-on course helps participants gain self-confidence and job-ready skills, while employers gain access to the entry-level skilled workers they need.
