Energy-saving support for small businesses
To help support small and medium-sized businesses in BC to recover from the challenges of COVID-19, we are proud to partner with GreenStep Solutions to provide free customized energy advice to participating businesses. You can get tips, technical advice and information about our programs that can help you save energy, greenhouse gas emissions and operating costs.
Advice to help business owners through COVID-19
GreenStep Solutions representatives will provide participating businesses with free customized energy advice via a telephone call, videoconference or a limited number of in-person visits with proper COVID-19 safety protocols in place. Businesses can apply for the Small Business Support Program, or be referred to the program. GreenStep Solutions will also be making outbound calls to businesses in the Okanagan, Kootenays and Vancouver Island regions—including Victoria, Saanich and Nanaimo—to encourage participation in these target communities.
The consultation will take 15 to 30 minutes, depending on the complexity of your business. Based on the needs of the each business, the advice could include:
- technical help to turn down your building if you’re closed due to COVID-19 (e.g. how to program the thermostat)
- low-cost/no-cost tips to reduce energy use and operating costs
- conducting a virtual basic energy assessment of your business
- information about FortisBC rebates on high-efficiency equipment for your business
After the consultation, participants will receive a follow-up email summarizing the opportunities identified. If you need further support, GreenStep can refer you to a FortisBC key account manager or energy solutions manager.
