PowerSmart Month 2012: BCHL Hockey

Comments 44 by Rebecca Bollwitt

October is BC Hydro PowerSmart Month which focuses on sharing information about conserving energy, using electricity wisely, finding the right electronics and lighting options for your home, and offering great deals and savings to consumers. Throughout PowerSmart Month I will be sharing updates, deals, and a few exciting giveaways.

PowerSmart Month 2012

PowerSmart activations and activities have been popping up around the province. This weekend you can check out the Vancouver Home & Design Show and use the code powersmart to book 2-for-1 tickets online. I also have a new play-again code Energy9 for PowerSmart’s Power Plinko game online.

PowerSmart Tips
The warm sunshine has ended its extended stay in Metro Vancouver so be sure to draft-proof your home as the temperature drops. Seal up cracks along windows with caulking and weather stripping to reduce heat loss. You can also bundle up at home with a sweater or blanket to keep your thermostat down a degree or two — even that little bit helps.

Something that I need to learn to do myself is shut off the power to my computer on the weekends when it’s not in use. Another quick tip is to turn off the lights when you’re not in a room or putting your lights on timers so that they do not remain on all night or day.

When it comes to hockey (which is my PowerSmart theme for this week) watch or listen in groups, with friends or family. Ten people around one television or radio is better than having ten appliances on and using power.

BCHL Hockey Giveaway
BC Hydro is a proud partner of the BC Hockey League and they’ve teamed up with me to do a giveaway for my readers. I have 4 pairs of BCHL tickets up for grabs that can be redeemed for any BCHL game. The winners can pick their games — from the Chilliwack Chiefs, Langley Rivermen and Victoria Grizzlies, to the Surrey Eagles, Vernon Vipers, Penticton Vees and more. Here’s how you can enter to win:

  • Leave a comment naming your BCHL team or who you would like to see (1 entry)
  • Post the following on Twitter (1 entry)
RT to enter to win tickets to a @BCHLlive game from @PowerSmartBC & @Miss604 http://ow.ly/envij

I will draw 4 winners at random from all entries on Wednesday, October 17, 2012 at 5:00pm. Tickets are valid for any regular season 2012-2013 game and tickets can be picked up at the box office in your city. Follow the BCHL on Facebook and Twitter to find out more about hockey in your community.

Update The winner is @GregShackelton!
