Community Energy Planning Announcement
Tsawout is looking for Community input to help us develop our energy planning solutions. As you may have heard, BC Hydro has announced further rate increases of up to 15% over the next two years, with further increases planned. Through this planning, Tsawout can play a role in helping the community save and become more efficient for future growth and development.
Through this planning and survey, our goal is to continue to seek community input so that energy savings can help you and your family budget. The Community Energy Plan project continues into the new year as we learn more about your needs.
