Power Smart Partners - Industrial

Power Smart Partners is BC Hydro’s flagship demand management program serving large industrial, commercial, and government customers in British Columbia. This direct energy acquisition program supports market transformation through a partnering approach with BC Hydro’s top 1,000 large commercial and industrial customers. A customer that commits to improving energy efficiency by at least 5% becomes a Power Smart Partner, gaining access to financial support and assistance to identify and implement electricity savings. BC Hydro provides matching funding, resources (energy managers to conduct energy audits), incentives (a competitive incentive fund, incentives to enable continuous operational improvements), and e.points bonus rewards that encourage future energy efficiency initiatives by rewarding customers who achieve the 5% reduction with dollar credits. Educational and promotional activities also encourage customers to identify energy savings opportunities (ESOs) and thus accelerate customer transformation.
