Across the province, BIA members promote energy conservation & collect warm clothing for local charities, October 23 – 29 #turndowntheheatweek

VANCOUVER, BC – From October 23 to 29, participating businesses from across the province are setting their thermostats down by one degree and asking their customers to bring in sweaters to donate to those less fortunate. Turn Down the Heat Week is an annual initiative, led by the Business Improvement Areas of BC, to help raise awareness of the energy used every day in homes and businesses and learn about simple steps to save.

“Turn Down the Heat Week shows a real commitment to saving energy and we're glad to be a part of it,” says Danielle Wensink, director, conservation and energy management, FortisBC. “We encourage all businesses to consider how they use energy every day for heating, water and even cooking and pledge to take at least one or two simple steps to save where it counts the most for their operation.”
