October is PowerSmart Month and I have partnered with BC Hydro over the last few weeks to bring you contests, rebate offers from local retailers, energy-saving tips, and event info. This week doesn’t have a theme like the others, however I do have a grand prize announcement.
PowerSmart Deal of the Week
From October 15th until the 21st you can save up to $500 on an eco-friendly Samsung LCD at all Best Buy locations.
PowerSmart Tip of the Week
Being energy-efficient when it comes to lighting starts with turning off light switches when you’re not in the room or at home. You can take a few more eco-friendly steps by using compact fluorescent lights (or CFLs) which use 75% less energy than traditional light bulbs. LED lights are also hitting the market and they are available as individual bulbs or as full lighting fixtures. You can also purchase timers to make sure your outdoor or indoor lights turn off at a certain hour instead of remaining on throughout the day or night.
PowerSmart Events this Week
On October 17th there will be a special PowerSmart Month campaign at the North Vancouver London Drugs and Team PowerSmart will be at the West Coast Women’s Show in Abbotsford October 22nd until the 24th. The Candlelight Conservation Dinner is also taking place October 21st at dozens of local restaurants.
