The Williams Lake Salvation Army Food Bank will be open from 12:30 to 4 p.m. Wednesday for distributing money saving energy kits from BC Hydro

BC Hydro representatives will be distributing free energy saving kits at food banks and Christmas bureaus in Prince George, Williams Lake and Quesnel to help local residents save energy and money this winter.

They will be in Williams Lake today (Wednesday) at the Salvation Army Food Bank at 267 Borland Street from 12:20 to 4 p.m.

Energy saving kits, offered in partnership with FortisBC, will provide income-qualified customers with easy-to-install, energy saving items such as LED light bulbs, weather stripping products, high performance shower heads and water-saving aerators.

These products can help customers save up to $80 in electricity costs each year.
