West Kootenay EcoSociety and Nelson Hydro’s EcoSave program are partnering on the Seniors Energy Efficiency Program. The program aims to complete 200 installations of basic home energy efficient materials for seniors in the Nelson Hydro service area, including LED light bulbs, weatherstripping, outlet insulators, faucet aerators, shower heads and more. The entire program is free!


How it works:

West Kootenay EcoSociety provides training for all volunteers engaged in the installations. Seniors who wish to receive the free installations register and will be contacted to set an appointment. Two trained volunteers will work together to install the materials and check appliances to maximize efficiency and efficacy.

Who is eligible?

Any Nelson Hydro customer over 65 years of age, or who will turn 65 in 2019 is invited to participate. Click here to sign up for the Seniors Energy Efficiency Program. Please note that we are approaching 200 registrants – once we have reached capacity, all new registrants will be added to our wait list.
