Candlelight Conservation Dinner 2009

Comments 3 by Rebecca Bollwitt

Tourism Vancouver and BC Hydro have teamed up for a special dining opportunity happening tomorrow around Vancouver.

On Wednesday October 28th the Candlelight Conservation Dinner will see over 30 restaurants around town dimming their dining room lights to promote saving energy during the last week of Power Smart Month.

The Candlelight Conservation Dinner is designed to bring attention to electricity conservation. The BC Energy Plan calls for B.C. electricity self-sufficiency by 2016 and for conservation to reduce, by 50%, the expected growth in overall electricity demand in the province by 2020.

If you go to BC Hydro’s website and sign up for Team Power Smart they also have some deals* that you can redeem at some of these participating restaurants:
