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.

BC Hydro’s Candlelight Conservation Dinner is coming up October 25, 2012 at participating restaurants throughout the province. Reservations can be made now for this cozy and romantic dining experience that will save energy by turning off the lights.

I have $100 gift cards available to give away for three of the participating restaurants: The Observatory (at Grouse Mountain), Hidden (at the Westin Grand on Robson), and The Teahouse (in Stanley Park). Each of these venues provides a unique experience which will only be enhanced when dining by candlelight. Here’s how you can enter to win one of these three gift cards:
