Commercial Energy Assessment Program
Your business can receive a free walkthrough energy assessment conducted by an authorized FortisBC consultant. This assessment will identify low- and no-cost energy conservation measures, potential energy efficiency upgrades for you to consider and available rebates from FortisBC.
Eligible apartment building owners can also receive a free energy assessment from the Rental Apartment Efficiency Program.
- You must be a commercial FortisBC natural gas and/or electricity customer or municipal electricity customer of Grand Forks, Penticton, Summerland and Nelson Hydro.1
- You must be the owner or long-term leaseholder of a medium-sized business or small industrial/manufacturing facility.
The energy assessment will help small and medium-sized commercial and industrial customers identify low- and no-cost energy conservation improvements they can make in their businesses and facilities.
After a walkthrough assessment with a FortisBC authorized consultant, you’ll receive a report outlining potential energy efficiency upgrades and information about FortisBC rebates to help save on the cost of upgrading to high-efficiency equipment.
