Welcome to the City of Prince George's 'Save Money - Save Energy!' page. The City of Prince George wants to help you find the opportunities to save energy at home and at work. You can reduce your energy costs in the near and long term. We’re partnering with BC Hydro, FortisBC and Natural Resources Canada to get the message out that there are ways to save energy at home and at work.

As part of the City of Prince George's energy and greenhouse gas program, the City has set a community-wide target to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 2% from 2002 levels by 2012.  We’re on our way, and with your help, we can make it.

We've put together the following videos to let you know about how we're working to reduce energy use in Prince George, and how you can reduce your use:

The City of Prince George has been recognized by the Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM) and ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability for achieving Milestones 4 and 5 at both the Corporate level and the Community level of the Partners for Climate Protection (PCP) program. The PCP program is a results-oriented network of Canadian municipal governments that have committed to reducing GHGs and acting on climate change. Member municipalities progress through a series of five milestones that help them to build their capacity to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions:

  1. Create a GHG emissions inventory and forecast.
  2. Set an emissions reductions target.
  3. Develop a local action plan.
  4. Implement the local action plan or a set of activities.
  5. Monitor progress and report results. 

The City of Prince George, a PCP member since 2002, was recognized for its achievements in reducing GHG emissions and improving energy efficiency. Prince George is only the fifth municipality in Canada to achieve Milestone 5 for both Corporate and Community initiatives.
