Energy Save New West is pleased to announce that the City of New Westminster has been selected by FortisBC as a 2017 Energy in Action award winner.

Eleven (11) awards, in the categories of public sector, commercial, industrial, foodservice and new home construction, were handed out at a luncheon on Thursday, May 4th at the Pan Pacific Hotel in Vancouver.  The City of New Westminster was recognized in the public sector “municipal government” category.

FortisBC’s Energy in Action awards recognize exceptional energy savings in residential building, commercial upgrades and industrial operations. Award winners include businesses of all sizes, municipalities and institutions that have worked with FortisBC to make a significant reduction in their energy use.

Through their combined efforts, the 2017 winners have saved an estimated 120,000 gigajoules (GJ) of annual natural gas savings, which is the equivalent of taking approximately 1,200 gasoline-powered cars off the road.
