Local Hydro-Electricity Generation

Nelson Hydro jpgNelson Hydro generates its own local electricity, but can only produce enough to serve about 50% of its customers so the remainder is purchased through FortisBC. This means that Nelson Hydro customers can access rebates through FortisBC. Visit their website for rebate information, energy-saving tips and how-to videos Click Here.
