EcoSave Program

The Regional District Central Kootenay (RDCK) is committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions and has developed the Regional Energy Efficiency Program (REEP) to assist those doing a home renovation to make their buildings more energy efficient. Nelson Hydro's EcoSave program has expanded to include all residents within the RDCK. Click below for program details and pricing.

Privacy - Thermal imagery is collected using a thermal sensor attached to the bottom of an airplane. We only collect mid-wave thermal infrared energy (3-5 µm) emitted from the surface of the features (i.e., houses, roads, vegetation) composing the scene at the time of acquisition. We do not collect, or have access to, any information regarding the number of occupants in a house, their age, gender, race, income, or the occupancy status of the home. We also cannot identify any contents within the home. Furthermore, this imagery is not collected in real-time. LEARN MORE.
