VIE is a BC Hydro PowerSmart Alliance member. We work with our customers to save them money on their Hydro bill. We review our customer’s hydro bill and identify any surcharges for poor power factor, perform a power quality study and provide detailed analysis. With this information we will provide recommendations on correcting the power system to run as efficiently as possible. This is done by replacing inefficient electrical devices (lighting and motor loads), installing capacitors and filtered harmonic banks. The energy saved is typically recovered within three years of installation and saves our customers money.
