New Program Brings Haida Gwaii Businesses No-Cost Energy Efficiency Assessments
Austin, TX (December 21, 2022)—Businesses on Haida Gwaii can now sign up for no-cost energy assessments as part of BC Hydro’s new Commercial Building Energy Efficiency Program (CBEEP), delivered by CLEAResult’s local Canadian team, Ecofitt, who has a long history of community engagement in the region.
The commercial program is the first of its kind to provide businesses in the small, remote communities of Haida Gwaii with opportunities to reduce energy use through free energy efficiency upgrades. CLEAResult, Ecofitt and BC Hydro will be working closely with the Haida Nation communities of Skidegate and Old Massett to enable them to take full advantage of everything the program has to offer.
“Making energy efficiency easy and accessible for Haida Gwaii businesses is vital to protecting the unique environment of the islands,” said Ryan Shaw, CLEAResult’s Senior Vice President of Canada. “By working directly with community leaders, we can ensure we’re providing a program that serves the specific needs of local businesses and indigenous communities.”
CLEAResult, the largest energy efficiency, energy transition and decarbonization solutions provider in Canada and the U.S., was awarded the contract in October, marking the company’s first commercial program in the area since acquiring Ecofitt earlier this year.
Participating businesses will receive an energy assessment to determine eligible upgrades, then switch to more energy-efficient lighting, heating systems and water fixtures, plus replace inefficient refrigerators and freezers as needed—all at no cost.
“Energy efficiency is one of our best tools for reducing reliance on diesel-generated electricity on Haida Gwaii,” BC Hydro’s Program Manager, Amy Seabrooke, added. “This new program enables our customers on Haida Gwaii to save energy and money while providing broader benefits to the whole community.”
With residential and commercial energy efficiency programs now available, people living on Haida Gwaii have multiple options for saving energy and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
Haida Gwaii businesses can find the full program details and apply for an assessment online.
