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:

      This is awesome… shame it’s on the same night as U2, cos people need to hear about the conservation agenda. I looked for the coupons and man they are hard to find, but they are there..
      you need to log onto your powersmart team acount. once you are logged in they are in the bottom right hand corner of the team powersmart tab….Look for “contests and offers”….
