Kootenay Energy Diet under way in the Boundary
The Kootenay Energy Diet is underway with almost 40 Boundary residents signing up to learn how to cut their energy waste.
Fortis BC has held two trade shows in the Boundary region, one in Midway and one in Grand Forks, which finished on Tuesday. The trade shows were an opportunity for the public to ask questions about the energy diet and learn what their options are.
Interested residents can join the energy diet for $60, and they will get a full assessment by a certified energy auditor and extras like energy efficient light bulbs, insulation and a low-flow shower head. For those that join in Midway, the city is offering a $10 rebate for the first 25 that sign up and in Grand Forks the city is offering a rebate of $25 for the first 100 homeowners that sign up.
Once the assessment is done, homeowners may qualify for grants or low-interest loans through the Grand Forks Credit Union.
Anyone interested in signing up can find information booths at farmer’s markets and other events like the Greenwood Founder’s Day or Rock Creek’s Vintage Fair. Check out this page for more information and watch the video to see how the Grand Forks trade show went.
