There’s a new clean energy act that is aimed at reducing power usage by calling on BC Hydro to install a high-tech energy grid to detect fraudulent activity and interactive power meters in every home. The power meters will provide customers with real-time information from BC Hydro – when’s the best time to turn on the dishwasher, how much stand-by electricity is being used, what appliances are consuming the most energy. It’s a great idea, kind of like this.
If we’re more aware of the culprits of energy consumption, maybe we’ll use less of it. And if we use less of it, we can avoid accidents like this: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/37353392/ns/gulf_oil_spill. Even better, you might even be inspired to install a solar panel on your roof to offset your energy guzzling and reduce your Hydro bills. At Alpine Credits, we are all for anything green (have you seen our website?). So much so, that we will give you a loan if you want to take the initiative to reduce your household’s carbon footprint. And it doesn’t matter if you’ve got bad credit or no credit – BC Hydro keeps score, we don’t.
