Launched in June 2020, the Energy Savings Program is a new initiative in partnership with FortisBC providing energy services to operators of assisted living, independent living and long-term care homes in B.C. BCCPA recognizes energy costs and concern for the environment are both important factors impacting how care homes operate throughout the province. With this in mind, the Energy Savings Program gives BC Care Providers Association (BCCPA) members an internal resource to assist with tracking and reporting on energy use and carbon emissions, equipping them with the information necessary to achieve cost and emissions reductions.
