Tell the BC Government to help protect basic energy access!

One in five British Columbians report that they have had a harder time paying their energy bills since the COVID-19 crisis. Without new protections, thousands more families will struggle to pay their household energy bills and face the threat of service disconnection.

You can help! Send a letter to the Premier asking the Province to protect basic energy access for all British Columbians, especially those most vulnerable during and after the COVID-19 crisis.  

Join us as we call on the Province of British Columbia to: 

1) Provide emergency bill relief to all who need it, by improving crisis programs, eliminating late payment charges, and extending the ban on service disconnection.

2) Create new sustained protections, including a basic energy rebate to provide direct bill relief for households experiencing financial hardship.

3) Accelerate BC’s recovery and create thousands of jobs, by committing to an ambitious housing renewal strategy that ensures every home and building in BC meets rigorous climate and health standards.

Letters will be sent to Premier Horgan, your MLA, opposition leaders, and the Ministers responsible for Energy, Housing, and Poverty Reduction.
